[clug-talk] Ubuntu upgrade questions

I'm about to wipe a drive that currently has Kubuntu dapper on it (or is
it edgy??). I'm intending on putting Feisty on there, and need to get
it configured to play music, videos, etc. So, I have a few questions on
1. Has anyone tried the "Ultimate Ubuntu" distro? I hear it is designed
to address these multimedia capabilities by default. Failing that,
anyone have any suggestions other than the usual Feisty configs? (which
to be honest aren't that bad...)
2. The fellow currently using the box only wants one thing saved - the
history of his browsing sessions. He selects the URLs from the address
bar (i.e. type in clug and it pops up http://www.clug.ca as an option to
be selected). (Yep, he's a novice user and hasn't quite figured out
favorites/bookmarks yet.. :). So I should be able to do this if I just
copy across his .kde directory right? If it helps, the box will
primarily be used for web browsing.
3. iPod support would be good too. Any tips here? The last time I
tried with Edgy it didn't go so well...
Thanks for any tips.
