Tim, have you used VMware before?  This should allow you to
compile LilyPond inside a virtual machine.  I'm not certain what
the best way is to transfer the iso from Jonathan to you, though.

The goal of this iso to make it usable on a virtualization tool. The open source Sun VirtualBox can for example mount this as the virtual hard disk.

Once it's ready maybe I can create a torrent?  I've never done that before but it's probably the best way to transfer it.  It'll take a while.  
I can also give you FTP access to one of the servers run by me where you could upload it. That would be the easiest.


Thanks, Bertalan, that would be great.  I have a very slow upload speed, though, so it might be quicker to snail mail a DVD to someone. :)

I'm close to having a solution to this.  I created an .iso of my own regular xubuntu installation last night, installed it freshly this morning on a different partition, and the lilypond builds all worked perfectly.  Just now I removed all of the software I think is superfluous and am running another doc-build. If it works I'll create an .iso from it and see how big it is.  The one I made last night was huge, 1.5GB,  but it had all the non-lily related stuff I always install and it wasn't created from a fresh OS install the way it's recommended.  This one should be considerably smaller.
