We need to put a statement in the release notes that anyone short on
RAM or disk space should use the alternate cd to install Xubuntu 9.10.
The reason for this is that the latest rebuild of the Xubuntu 9.10
Desktop cd installs OpenOffice.org completely now when it pulls in the
language packs. 

This is not going to be good for anyone short of RAM or disk space.
