The presentation mode did the trick for now.

Someone who is not aware of that new feature may have a bit of a 
frustrating day when doing a similar install on an external HDD

The thing is that this was all done while using a Live USB on another 
USB slot :-)

The Wifi of the old box doesn't seem to work yet all the rest looks OK 
at first glance

Lubuntu running on a no-name chinese AMD 1500mhz with no more then 256MB 
RAM, and 64MB of that is shared video RAM in S3 graphics

It runs like a donkey in a miniskirt, but it runs without tripping...

I might put the first Lubuntu machine out in the wild this weekend!

Free as in no owner!
