Without prejudging the "install or not" question, lilybuntu itself
should give you the option to install it.

Here's an advertising-laden page on the process:

if you want to look for a different guide, just search for "ubuntu
9.04 install", or maybe "jaunty install"  (jaunty is the 'release
name' for ubuntu 9.04)

If you open up the second top-bar-menu from the left, you should
see a list of "locations" like
clicking on any one of those will give you a file navigation tool.
You can change the display options of that to list view, tree
view, etc.

(it might be the third top-bar-menu from the left?  I can't
remember precisely, but if you click around a bit, you should be
able to find it.  It's definitely installed in the main thing)

also, to clarify: lilybuntu is ubuntu 9.04 with some extra
development software installed.  For all practical purposes, it
*is* ubuntu 9.04, so any tutorial or blog or guide about ubuntu
9.04 will apply to lilybuntu.
