Oops. Yes, I went with the preview release. I must have done something
wrong the first time I tried, because I went through the whole install
process without any errors, but ended up with a system with no X stuff
and no Gnome. I tried again assuming I did something wrong and/or to
try to duplicate it for troubleshooting, but the second attempt was a
complete success. Man, there's a big difference between running Ubuntu
on a 400Mhz machine with 384Mb of RAM, and a 2.8Ghz machine with a Gig
of RAM! :-)

That is the coolest thing I've ever seen. (I know, I'm sheltered). I
knew that it would only download the changed files in a directory or
something but I had no idea it could replace the updated parts within
an ISO file. That's too cool. Thanks!
