Hi I purchased 'The Official Ubuntu Server Book 2nd Edition' which comes complete with a boot CD labelled as 'Desktop Edition and 32-bit Server' (10.04 LTS). I can boot from the disc but I can't seem to get to the server edition, it only gives me the desktop installation screen.
The book is no help it just starts from the server install screen with no mention of the desktop edition. I want to create a LAMP server and I've found the
boot: prompt but have no idea how to initiate the server install.
What command do I need to enter at the boot prompt to start the server install?
I've accidentally installed the desktop edition before I realised it wasn't server. Can I just install server from that?
EDIT: From the Desktop install screen I see this command;
file=/cdrom/preseed/ubuntu.seed boot=casper only-ubiquity initrd=/casper/initrd.lz quiet splash --
Examining the CD I've found the
/preseed/ubuntu-server.seed file but switching to the boot prompt and entering the above command with the server seed didn't workas it tells me it can't find that kernel image.
EDIT: Opening boot prompt and then hitting return got me to the boot menu so I could press TAB to edit the commmands and see that I needed
/casper/vmlinuz before the command. This attempted the install but it failed and I'm back at the desktop now trying to work out why the install failed.
