Started with the non-pae mini.iso..20120303
installed the lubuntu-core (minimal)
Got a clean install then proceed to apt-get synaptic then used it to lubuntu-desktop
Added to many of my choice things..
Then decided I would just see about the remastersys creates a distribution custom.iso.. So I did..
It worked as liveCD and had an install icon for custom.iso
SOOOOo.. just did that too.
Only thing that went wrong I have no option where to install the grub so it obviously in my MBR ...
I will fix that not a problem back to my Lucid partition.
Secondly the custom.iso is really to large about 803MB at this point so i will trim off the LXDE and other stuff i plugged in on the next attempt.. Anyway I am pleased as puddin..

Most of the steps seem pretty straight forward, up to the point of the selection of the desktop. If my goal is to replicate the installation that would be produced from the Ubuntu CD iso image, I assume I'd choose Ubuntu Desktop.
What is not clear to me is whether or not this includes all applications and packages contained in the standard cd image file, e.g. LibreOffice, Firefox, Gedit, Network Manager, etc. Will these packages need to be added after the Unity Desktop package completes? Forgive me if this is an obvious question, but I've never completed an install from the mini.iso.
The beauty of the mini.iso is that you can customize the install the way you want it particularly if you do the ubuntu-core or the lubuntu-core first then boot the install. Then build from that install and get exactly what you want.
Of course, when you are not sure exactly how you want it the ubuntu-desktop would be a good choice. Just be very patient it takes awhile for sure.
I see there's a new March 14th image. I have a doctors appointment today but maybe this evening I can check it out

Notice there was a new mini.iso dated 20120315 today... Never got the 20120314 iso tested but at least the new one worked okay. Mine was built to the Lubuntu-desktop non-pae kernel and it is doing just fine so far. Well i did get a apport bug right after booting the install..
Here is the link for the non-pae mini.iso
Just in case you need it or want to test a mini.iso build with the non-pae kernel.
Lubuntu 12.04 desktop has a non-pae kernel as of last spin
Linux tester-Latitude-D620 3.2.0-19-generic #30-Ubuntu SMP Fri Mar 16 16:26:45 UTC 2012 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
Not sure why the Mar 16 date this was zsynced today 20120319.
Anyway got a clean install and updated the qa-tracker.
