In doing some recent virtual build out’s I’ve found that there isn’t accruate documentation online for how to do this from a fresh Ubuntu 10.04 install.

Steps Prior

(install Ubuntu Server 10.04)

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install gcc

sudo mkdir /media/cdrom/

sudo mount /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom
