I don't want to hijack Nick's page so I thought I would put this up here.
I decided to zsync quantal-alternate-i386.iso and it updated from Sept. 10th/2012. I guess that was the shut off point.
I hooked up 4 Maxtor IDE drives to a VIA MoBo, 2.8GHz with ATi Radeon(Unity 3d Friendly).
With a lot of tweaking and working in the partitioning manager everything went well until I accepted 'Finish'. The warning told me that It could not find the target. I went back and found out that I rooted (/) the wrong disk. After cleaning up that and resetting everything - when I click finish the setup will not recognize (sda1(0.0.0) as root even though I set it up in partioner manually. So, basically what is happening is that it appears the 'settings' are being wiped out after I 'finish' and it will not install.
I am going to try again.
Please delete those crappy screenshots !
