Testing needed: Xubuntu 8.04 beta alternative ISOs

Yes, once we get a few successful reports for both the i386 and amd64
alternative ISO, we'll add it to the Xubuntu 8.04 release. Daily builds are
frozen (or so I believe) so that this testing can take place. I'll do a test
install of the i386 alternative this evening.

If we don't have enough testing done by Friday (the 28th), I'm going to
resume the daily builds and an alternative ISO for Xubuntu 8.04 will not be
released. So, please, test and report it! :)
