Hi,  Tyler.

I installed 10.04 on KVM on the Dell 860 & apart from the refresh rate 
being awful, it caused no problems at all.

I want to install Lucid on my Dell 1850 & from what I've gleaned from a 
fairly extensive Googling session it does install but everybody was 
using X & complaining about the refresh rate but seeing as I'm going for 
the server version it's of no consequence (the machine will be 
controlled from another terminal in a different room anyway).

Still, I'll give your suggestion a whirl just to be on the safe side.

Thanks for your help,
