Any daily images built from this point forward will not be for Natty, but
for Oneiric, as Natty has reached the final release milestone.

Therefore, unless you plan to use Natty for purposes other than testing, I
would have waiting to install Oneiric from the Alpha1 release and bypasses
any Natty install completely.

I should note that some people prefer to test in VM.  I have a slightly
older machine that I use to test and do a full install on metal.  In this
case I don't mind installing over a previous testing installation and I
don't do this every day, just at each alpha, beta, rc  release and as needed
with the daily images to test if a fix is working correctly.

The Natty installer detected the correct keyboard, but for the GNOME

I have no experience with modems unfortunately.

I'm not interested in solving this issues, but install the daily release

can find it with the other tests under the two different architectures.  To
this point, this means there is not a "correct" link, there is only one

I understand your concerns about partitioning. I would be willing to send
you a hard drive to install as a second drive upon which you could do test
installs as a compromise if you were willing.  I would understand if you
would not be.
