 Thanks Stephen,
 
 I found that to enter GRUB you simply press and hold SHIFT.  I added the
 parameter to the end of the the boot command and booted they system and it
 did the same thing.Lubuntu splash and then the screen goes blank.

   Any ideas?

It would appear there isn't really a solution for this problem, from what I've 
found googling. :(
To cheer you up though, todays xkcd http://xkcd.org/ :)

My only sugestion is to try the alternate install, rather than the minimal 
method.

Thanks,

I ended up using Wary (from Puppy Linux) and was able to get it running.
Not the most elegant solution, but it works.  It will probably never get
used anyway.  My friend just wanted something for his father to use when he
hangs around his office.  He was going to buy something else so I decided
to see if I could get Lubuntu on it.

Thanks for the XKCD too.  Perfect!  I love this one:  http://xkcd.com/149/
