When $work assigned a laptop to me, a ThinkPad T21, I believe, that had
become available I used the alternative Ubuntu installer and performed a
CLI install, then added X, Fluxbox, and iDesktop. It worked okay for me
to do light web browsing, VPN, and rdesktop, for the few months until I
acquired a T40 on my own and began using that instead.
