I have installed Ubuntu on 3 machines so far. On 2 machines the installation
ran as expected and on boot up I had a login screen. That is the intended
behavior, right? On the 3rd machine - the one that my email was about - the
UI would not start up as xorg had not been configured correctly by the
installer. That is the bug I was referring to.

I emailed the group asking for help in manually working around this i.e.
manually configuring xorg settings. I got some friendly advice which was
much appreciated but unfortunately it didn't help but it was worth asking. 

The Ubuntu web site encourages new users to participate on this mailing list
so I'm not sure why you are taking issue with me here. I thought that open
source projects actually wanted people to test and provide feedback... I've
obviously missed something.
