Problems and Pitfalls

You probably need to use the Kubuntu Alternate Install CD. Pick you favorite mirror, and then choose the alternate install CD. This will get you a nice text-only installer.

Get video going

The F-I90HD uses the ATI Xpress 1250 chipset, so after installation is completed, you can follow this guide to get video going properly.

HDMI

HDMI and DVI (via the HDMI->DVI-Adapter) works but I could not get sound to go through the HDMI-connection. Probably a driver issue. I found somewhere that it needs a RealTek HD Audio over HDMI driver or something.
