Yep.  Works well.

There was a DVD version of ubuntu on the coverdisk of Linux Magazine issue
69 - August 2006.  It has the development tools and libraries, kernel
versions for machines other than 386 and the kernel source code.  Also the
basic KDE apps like konqueror, Kate, Kmail etc.  

Still no sign of the indispensable MC (midnight commander) but that's
a small download - even on dialup.
