I've downloaded the Lubuntu 64-bit Live CD as well the alternate spin &
if it's successful in its run, I'll use the alternate spin to set up the
LVM structure I need.

I find it a real pity that Ubuntu doesn't offer a net install CD. I use
the net install option on virtually every other distro (or, in certain
cases, I set up a http install by copying the DVD to a directory on one
of my servers). It'd make life (well, my life) a lot easier if they did
I think ;-)



currently (ab)using
CentOS 5.8 & 6.3, Debian Squeeze & Wheezy, Fedora Beefy & Spherical, OS
X Snow Leopard & Ubuntu Precise & Quantal
