Ubuntu/Debian Server on XM

Hi,

I have Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook running on a xM. I would like to have a
headless, minimal setup that I can add servers to - web, ftp, etc;
preferably from a pre-built distro.

From what I can find, almost no-one is running ubuntu server. Is
there a reason for that (e.g. drivers)? Is it a good option to get
what I want, or am I better off starting with the netbook version,
stripping the fat out, and booting to a console?

Cheers,

Lee

Oh some of us are...

That's why these minimal demo image exist..

It's just the upstream Canonical/Ubuntu guys that don't seem to have a
stripped down version..

Regards,

Oh - so the so-called demo image is actually a fully writable/
changeable installation? I had assumed they were along the lines of a
live CD.

I can confirm that the image/script works beautifully, wish I'd gone
this way to start with...

server image will be available for Ubuntu 11.04. this cycle we
transitioned to the new 'pre installed' format instead of the standard
liveCD, but next cycle we will provide server image again.
