[ubuntu-uk] dig out your old computers...

Working beautifully now. Fast, smooth, looks good.

First reboot with kernel 3.2.0-18 caused it to reset but it's worked
fine since then.

All updates installed fine, as did lubuntu-restricted-extras -
although with much whinging about libavcodecs53 being removed. A whole
ton of packages were reported missing at the final, "building package
database" stage, but they are all ones that I would not expect to be
there - e.g. bits of KDE - and there were no problems.

Final installed image is only about 2.1GB with the old kernel removed
and the APT cache emptied.

I am impressed so far!

I've added gnome-system-monitor, the IcedTea JVM, AdBlock+ to Chromium
and xterm. It's tiny, well, tiny for 2012, fast and slick. It looks
great too.

There is no startup sound, although sound is working fine, e.g. in
Youtube. That seems a little odd.

Also, I have one trivial problem, which I will report separately.
