Thank you Jonathan. I did not do any beta versions, so I am not sure wether wubi worked with them or not. You mention to try as a normal graphical installer - is there a particular file I need to point to to begin the installation? This is being installed on a Windows XP Pro system (as I've found with other Linux versions, XP is the most "friendly"). I'm anxious to give Lubuntu a try - I tried the much-hyped Kubuntu and felt that it is to Linux what Vista is to Windows! I've embedded a Lubuntu banner on my website and an ready to help spread the word, but I need to test it first. Any installation help you provide, I will pass on to others in case they run into similar situation.
