Might it be possible to
turn ON, presentation mode, when the installer runs?

When installing  Lubuntu to a USB connected HDD (using the normal 
installer) then the sleepmode or screensaver mode, seems to try to mount 
the usb drive on wakup.  This apperently disrupts the installer errors 
popup and stuff crashes.

I now manually put the machine in presentation mode.  And so far so 

Maybe there is a better way?

BTW, i discovered why the floppy did not work, there was a complete 
bunny hiding on the inside... So i will give that option also another
