    Also, 128mb ram is very, very small these days. Even the normal Ubuntu won't run on that, nevermind the bloated (because it pre-installs a *ton* of programs and services) 'Ultimate' ubuntu will not.

    You're better off trying Fluxbuntu or Xubuntu. Those are designed for machines such as yours.
    Rather offended by your post.
    Have you tried this 1.9x64 bit edition?
    I have been using Ultimate for the last 2 years & have nothing but praise for the creator, TheeMahn.
    Yes, it is Ubuntu, but with everything except kitchensink.deb thrown in - free, non-free, alpha, beta, theta or just plain fun. One of the more "unofficial" offerings around, Ubuntu Ultimate grew out of a couple of specialist gamer rebuilds (via Reconstructor) by programmer and Ubuntu Forums member TheeMahn2003. It takes a very direct approach to the whole free/non-free issue by including scripts that pop up offering to install binaries with "End User Licence Agreements", like Adobe, Flash and Java, before the installation is even finished. Naturally, Compiz/Beryl and every plug-in imaginable has been included too - as has Recontructor in case you feel like going one better.

    * 100% Lintian / Debian base error free.
    * Added debug routine to help find any errors (--debug).
    * Exclusive lock class subroutine written (makes the possibility of package breakage nearly impossible) - not yet fully implemented.
    * Total restructor of file layout to comply with Debian standards.
    * Added option to add repos or not (can still be removed through menu if user changes their mind later) - not fully implemented.
    * Added key gathering routine if the user decides to use repositories.
    * Created custom icons for all categories.
    * Removed dependency of tango icons.
    * Removed all traces of zenity and removed zenity as a dependency.

    We live in a McDonald's culture. We want everything instantly and without effort. And we bristle when others around us appear to be getting more, sooner. Waiting for rewards or results is out of favor. It is so uncool.

    Many things are created suddenly: the two-day house makeovers on HOME & GARDEN TELEVISION, for example, but they aren't great. They are adequate, functional, or practical improvements. Greatness requires thought and time, effort and sacrifice. Especially sacrifice.

    Stellar careers aren't built overnight. Take the orthopedic surgeon, whose education extends 15 years past high school. Take the country western star on Grand Ole' Opry. Take the NFL quarterback or wide receiver, the CEOs, CFOs, and Vice Presidents of brand-name companies. Think about Edison, Einstein, or Galileo, or anyone else you might admire. None of them got there overnight.

    Re: Installing ubuntu ultimate edition from iso file

    I wouldn't listen to a thing Vadi says anyway. He has a history of knocking any thing based on Ubuntu that tries to make a better OS. It's a shame anyone at all listens to his posts. It is almost like he has a personal vendetta against TheeMahn and Ultimate edition.

    Look at it this way folks, Ubuntu is a nice car, basic options from the factory. It just works and is reliable. Nothing wrong with that. Ultimate Edition is that same car with all the luxury and even many performance upgrades. Still reliable. It even works with some hardware that Ubuntu won't work with.

    Of course it is amazing that you will see no one at the Ultimate forums knock Ubuntu, it's a great distro, but you can come here and see people knock a great OS such as Ultimate Edition.

    Edit: BTW, Vadi speaks of people with little knowledge when obviously he is the unknowledgeable one. This is Linux, not Windows. Tech lesson #1 folks.... It does not matter how many programs are installed in a Linux Distro because Linux doesn't have a registry. Each program has it's own config file that does not have to load to run the OS. Only installed services can make a Linux OS "Bloated". In Windows all programs leave a registry key. The more programs that are installed=the more registry keys. This can lead to a very large registry that has to load when Windows boots. That's why Windows gets slower over time. Now who has little or no knowledge Vida. Ubuntu and Ultimate use the same exact resources so to say one is bloated means the other has to be bloated.

    Edit #2 Oh yeah I almost forgot. It's ULTIMATE EDITION, not Ubuntu Ultimate. There is NO distro called Ubuntu Ultimate.

    I love ultimate edition. Can't wait for UE 2.0 to come out. I can hardly wait for tabbed nautilus but I suppose I can hold off for a few more days.
    I would rather die of thirst than drink from the cup of mediocrity.

    Get better forum search results!

    I think the OP said that his PC have a CD-ROM (the one that reads but can't write to CD's) drive, hence the option of burning the iso in that PC isn't possible. But he can take the iso to other computer via a usb key or request a free ubuntu CD from shipit.
    "Some people says that if you run a Microsoft Midori iso backwards you will hear demon voices commanding you to worship Satan". But that's nothing. If you run it forward it will install Microsoft Midori.
