 I suggest that you try here ...
for an easy TDE.  One small gotcha if you want to use UK-English but are 
(like me) stuck with US-keyboards, then select US-Engrish from the live 
boot options - you can change to "proper" English afterwards.
PS.  I now see that Tim has replied and I agree with his comments about 
the bugs and regression errors that keep occurring in 'buntu distros.
IMO there has not been a truly tested and stable release of any 'buntu 
since 6.06.
  Your reference to "ego-driven user-unfriendly" developers seems very 
applicable to the current crop of Canonical employees who seem to think 
that "stable" is a swearword.  G.
