Clunky, ha ha. It doesn't work at all if you try the normal LiveCD 
install. The GUI partitioner seems to recognise the volumes as separate 
disks. In the next step, where you select the root and swap partions, it 
only display physical partitions.

So, I upgraded directly from Breezy by changing /etc/apt/sources.list to 
point to dapper. I read in one of the mails in the list, that talks 
about an alternate CD. Has anyone had any luck with that.
