Hello, Urban.

You might be interested in our 'biobuntu' project:


This is just an Ubuntu 6.01 LTS installation of the public deb packages 
available from NEBC (Natural Environment research Council Environmental 
Bioinformatics centre) Bio-Linux:


We're using it as the basis of our NuGO (European Nutritional genomics 
organisatio) 'Black Box' project.


We have a prototype 'live' biobuntu install DVD based on a remastering 
of the Ubuntu 6.01 LTS 'live' install CD, but it's not quite ready for 
distribution yet. When it is, we will decide how to distribute it. The 
prototype I've got has been tested, but we made some mistakes that need 
correcting. I'm working on it just now to install biobuntu on ten NBX's 
for NuGO. I'd be interested to hear from anyone else using Ubuntu-based 
distributions on similar projects - Please post to this list if you are.

Best wishes,
