May I drop in here, since this topic is of my very big interest
too !' ;-)

As a newbie I would like to have 2 installations:
1st ONE as a PROD and 
2nd ONE as a TEST environment !!

Well, this can / could be either the same versions or 
with upcoming of a new release with different releases !!!

Important for me would be:

Never experiment or play with the productive ONE !

If anything goes wrong with the TEST environment due my experiments ...
... I wanna "drive copy" the PROD to TEST to have identical and
failureless conditions again.
In my current / previous (non Linux OS - OS/2 Warp 4 MCP 4.52) I do have
this solution. ;-D

Well I do have more questions to such / this 2 Ubuntu version setup ...
... but have to come later again and hope for your assistance and hints
then ! ;-)

Cheers, svobi
