    If you look at this page, right in the middle of the page it says:

    netinst CD image (generally 135-175 MB)
    Even the business card iso is bigger than the Ubuntu/Lubuntu etc mini.iso.

    As far as working with your wireless adapter, I have two that work with the Ubuntu mini.iso, and one that doesn't, so it depends on the adapter.

    Debian has the business card and netinstall cds - but also a 16MB mini.iso

    http://ftp.debian.org/debian/dists/s...mages/netboot/

    There is also one for Wheezy

    Cariboo07,
    netinst CD image (generally 135-175 MB)
    I wonder if something like that would get around the
    "too big to fit on a CD" hopefully installing to the hard disk from the CD/USB up to tasksel and use the net after that.

    Removed duplicate post.

    @jerrylamos, I hope you don't expect new users to use tasksel. Keep in mind, we won't know if the Precise final iso will be over 700MiB until at the earliest Beta 2 which will be released at the end of March.

    It looks like 'tasksel' is back where it was before I requested a change so when Beta 1 testing is complete I'll be giving this a fresh try

    We can live with "lubuntu-desktop' being called Ubuntu LXDE desktop

    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.

    Current tasksel functions:

    Code:
    lance@lance-desktop:~$ tasksel --list-task

    u ubuntu-dvd-live	Ubuntu live DVD
    u ubuntu-usb-live	Ubuntu live USB
    u xubuntu-live	Xubuntu live CD
    u manual	Manual package selection
    I plan on testing:

    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:

    http://xbmcmediacenter.com/how-to-in...untu-mini-iso/

    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:

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/In...llFromInternet

    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

    Update on the bootable USB

    It appears that unetbootin will work

    Even it's a bit funky if you're not used to file structure but I tried it and it works. But I've only been able to try it on the same box I created the USB on due to hardware failure.

    So right now I'm going to concentrate on what happened to the PSU that Fedex says they delivered on Wednesday but I never saw .............. I already know what happened! My low-life neighbors stole the damn thing

    Sad to have crappy neighbors

    But the previous builds of the netboot image show up on the unetbootin menu so I'll fire a message off to their dev(s) asking if they'll make both standard and non-pae available so noobs don't have to fiddle around much.

    For anyone keeping track, I filed a bug report for the lack of the b43 wireless driver in the mini.iso as Bug 945053.

    Thank you!

    But I'd always understood that a wired connection was needed for netboot. Am I wrong?

    I have no idea, I'd never even heard of it until you started this thread

    If that's the case then it probably will just get marked Invalid.
