I’m in the process of installing Ubuntu 9.10 Alpha 2 server on a test machine. I’ll let you know more tomorrow when i get to actually use the system. Installation is not the graphical one, as has been the way for Ubuntu server versions forever. I’m pretty sure you could use the graphical installer, but like.. who needs it?
The system i am installing it on is called mother, and is a 2.4 GHz P4, with 1.5 gigs ram, and 320 HD, Nvidia Vanta graphics card. Just a rig i threw together off of some spare parts i had laying around here.
