Anything on a server should be fine in Dapper (except maybe 1GB
ethernet), since you don't have to deal with wireless or graphics.

Feisty's success (Gutsy) won't be LTS either.  Gutsy + 1 or Gutsy + 2
will be.  You can upgrade from LTS to LTS, (Dapper -> Gutsy+1 or 2) or
simply one version at a time (Dapper -> Edgy -> Feisty -> Gutsy,etc.)
