Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "The Ubuntu, Kubuntu, and Edubuntu teams are proud to present a second Beta release of Ubuntu/Kubuntu/Edubuntu 6.06 LTS, codenamed "Dapper Drake". This release corrects some serious flaws in the installer present on the Desktop CD in the first Beta release. Although the text-mode install CD also forms part of this release, it has not been modified since Beta 1. An updated Xubuntu release is also in preparation and will be announced shortly." Hey look, a screenshot tour.

MBR not modified for me during HD install...

Just downloaded the x86_64 "Desktop" ISO, booted into it (needed "pci=noacpi noapic" for my Athlon 64 machine - surprisingly, this release doesn't run 2.6.16 which fixes this issue on my hardware) and ran the installer from the desktop.

Everything seemed to go smoothly (though it seemed to get the time wrong by an hour for BST, plus I thought having the mount points on a separate screen from the paritions when manually partitioning was a mistake), so I rebooted and, er, no change to the MBR! Before you ask - there was no menu.lst, grub.conf or lilo.conf installed in the / partition either. Looks like quite a bad bug to me...dunno if it's peculiar to my setup though.
