I may have a bit of a break in the quest to get ubuntu and orca
installed. I found the last CD I had downloaded from a previous
attempt to install the Live CD on a laptop. The
README.diskdefines file is as follows:

#define DISKNAME  Ubuntu 8.10 "Intrepid Ibex" - Release i386
#define TYPE  binary
#define TYPEbinary  1
#define ARCH  i386
#define ARCHi386  1
#define DISKNUM  1
#define DISKNUM1  1
#define TOTALNUM  0
#define TOTALNUM0  1

	The files are all dated October of 2008 and it appears
that it will boot properly on the target computer. I even got it
to talk a little but I may need my wife to watch the screen to
tell me exactly when the language selection screen occurs.

	Would I be able to install from ubuntu8 and then upgrade
on line?
