Might I inquire why you are doing the LTSP install?  LTSP is used when you are booting thin
clients from a central server.  Since you are dual-booting, I think it's safe to guess that you
meant to do a stand-alone installation of Edubuntu.

Some good instructions (okay, I may be biased, I wrote them) for doing a stand-alone
installation of Edubuntu can be found at:

I hope that helps!  Please keep us updated.
