Linux on Wyse Winterm WT9440XL

Goal of this project is to run Linux on the Wyse Winterm WT9440XL.
The Wyse Winterm is very similar to normal PC and so it is not really a problem.
I gave up fighting with the DOC. I disabled it, added a 2,5" HD and installed Ubuntu.
In future you will find here some documentation and may be ready to use software.
