OK, vacation's over
Thought I'd get back to this while the pressure's off, and I notice that there have been no changes in the non-pae mini.iso since Feb 27th.

Lubuntu minimal installation, which is 'lubuntu-core'.
Ubuntu LXDE Desktop, which is 'lubuntu-desktop'.
Ubuntu desktop, which is 'ubuntu-desktop'.
But it would be super cool if folks that are familiar with Kubuntu and Xubuntu would test:
Kubuntu desktop, which is 'kubuntu-desktop'.
Xubuntu desktop, which is 'xubuntu-desktop'.
But testing is the easy part, the hard part is producing a guide that any noob can understand .......... it's fairly easy for me to play the noob because I'm intellectually challenged
I still think we can largely depend on this guide:
As explained in post #53 I do think we need to more properly explain the "hostname", HTTP proxy, and a little bit about partitioning. Any thoughts?
Also I'd really like a fairly reliable and safe way to set up a USB flash drive for installation. Remember we want to be noob friendly. I think this should be doable using a small flash drive:
I know it's written for use with an actual hard drive, but I'm thinking someone should be able to create a bootable usb drive using any version of grub from any installed Ubuntu, installing grub to the mbr of that flash drive, etc. But the "etc'" is killing me.
Really any thoughts at all are welcome. Sometimes a robust discussion awakens otherwise sleeping brain cells
