Ubuntu Netbook Remix is a special edition of Ubuntu and right now, it seemed to be there isn’t any kind of installation from ISO cd or VB image of netbook remix available. Fortunately, the Ubuntu Netbook Remix Team offers a Personal Package Archive (PPA) of their great work.

Warning: Ubuntu Netbook Remix packages change a lot of settings on Ubuntu Hardy, including all session files and Nautilus setup. So DO NOT install the packages on your native desktop. You can install this Ubuntu Netbook Remix inside your VMWare or VirtualBox.

After you prepared a virtual machine, installation if fairly easy:

1) Add the PPA to your sources list (click the system->software sources or press alt+f2 and type sudo /etc/apt/sources.list):

2) Update your system and install Ubuntu Netbook Remix:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install go-home-applet human-netbook-theme maximus ume-launcher window-picker-applet

3) After installation, you need to restart gdm:

sudo /etc/init.d/gdm restart

And here is some screenshots (for more screenshots visit Flickr.com):
