Well, on this page:
step 3 says:
  Install ‘lilybuntu.iso’ as the “client” operating system on your
virtualized system.

I could be wrong about this, but current my understanding is that
you _do_ need to install lilybuntu.  Hopefully somebody who uses
it regularly can chime in here.
(if the answer is that you definitely need to install it instead
of just setting it as the boot cdrom, then I will clarify this in
the docs)

I consider the first snag to be the install-vs-mount question, so
I'm not certain we should move on before getting a definite
answer.  But in case it's ok to move on...

On this page:

I see the "wish lily-git.tcl" as step 3, not step 1.  Step 2 is:
  Download the lily-git.tcl script from:

I believe that the downloaded file will either be in your
$HOME/Downloads/ or $HOME/Desktop   directory.  The next version
of lilybuntu will hopefully have the script already downloaded.
