    install from DVD?

    Hi All,

    I'm getting a new computer next week and will retire my very old and tired P4.

    I'll be converting to a very small SSD at the same time.

    Anyway, I'm wondering if there is anyway for me to download ALL the installation files...which is the live CD and all the other files that are normally downloaded from the internet during a more typical install.

    My internet isn't fast, and downloading hte additional 1GB of files, plus all the updates takes quite awhile.

    I'd much rather do it now rather than later.

    The CD has to do all the updates that have been released since 12.04 came out.

    But I still think Aug 23 is the release date for 12.04.1 which then will include all the updates thru Aug 16 when it is frozen. Might be easier to wait.
