Hiyas Gang, the iso has been safely installed onto my server area and the md5 checks out okay. (Many thanks to bioterror for doing the transfer) The link is http://phillw.net/lubuntu-alternate-10.10.iso If some one could confirm that it installs I'll put on to the wiki area. The md5 is at http://dl.dropbox.com/u/2351433/Lubuntu-Alternate/lubuntu-10.10-alternate.iso.md5which I'll transfer over once I know the iso works.
