    Wrote it to a 2gb USB stick using Win32DiskImager and booted it on my AAO only to be dumped into an initramfs prompt.

    No idea what to do next.

    I gave up on the netbook remix and just run with vanilla Ubuntu 9.04. I recollect the only extra thing I downloaded to make it usable was the patch to prevent a limp wrist from nudging the mousepad and inadvertently moving the cursor whilst typing.

    I created the USB image having loaded Ubuntu Live on a desktop PC.

    I haven’t heard how much success others have had with 9.10 – I don’t plan to be a pioneer.
