Thanks to the many, many people who have contributed to this effort by

A couple of notes:
Download the iso file and burn it to a DVD.
To install pick graphical install at the first prompt.
To enable auto login edit etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf and look for the [SeatDefaults] section
mousepad is similar to gedit so open a terminal and:
sudo mousepad etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf

If you prefer gedit then you need to update apt-get
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gedit
