First preliminary testing results:

I used the .iso with VMWorstation6.5.2
installed to 4GB Virtual disk:
VMworkstation recognized Ubuntu and installed easily on EeePC1000HE 
running Ubuntu 9.10
came up to graphical gdm log-in with x-term and sugar as selections. 
Chose sugar and logged in.
1-) No plymouth
2-) Browse was not installed
3-) F1 Neighborhood showed others on Jabber correctly
4-) I could not get log out or shutdown to work from F1,F3 or Frame

This is a great addition.
(I previously have installed sugar using alsroot's ppa method on Ubuntu 

Thanks for this easy install.
