When I last used it, I selected it by mistake. It's on the boot menu that
comes up when you boot from the CD. It used to be only on the alternate CD,
but it seems Gutsy has a graphical version now, so perhaps it is on the
desktop CD. Not sure.

When I used it (in Dapper) it was basically a normal installation, you set
up the PC, up to the point of entering a username and password. This is
prompted for on the next boot (ie. when the user switches it on for the
first time).
