Would it be possible to have Ubuntu 8.04 LAMP as a 'Reinstall OS' option?

WORKAROUND:

For anyone that wants Ubuntu 8.04 LAMP the following seems to work once Ubuntu 8.04 Minimal is installed.
apt-get update && apt-get upgrade
#Do NOT use aptitude as it installs apparmour which does not play well with VPS
apt-get install apache2 php5-mysql libapache2-mod-php5 mysql-server

Your mysql install will fail, DON'T PANIC. Uncomment 'skip-innodb' in /etc/my.cnf
vi /etc/mysql/my.cnf

Then reinstall mysql
apt-get install mysql-server-5.0

That should do it!

NOTES:
* I haven't run in to any issues yet, but for reference here is what innodb does. This might be a good starting point for fixing the innodb issue.
* First I tried tasksel so I could simply install the LAMP metapackage, but it seemed to trigger the same apparmour/VPS issue.
# Install tasksel
apt-get install tasksel
# List installed metapackages
tasksel --list-tasks
# Install LAMP metapackage
tasksel install lamp-server
# Confirm installation
tasksel --list-tasks

* You may try going the 'aptitude' route by uninstalling apparmour. Caveat emptor, I didn't investigate that option.
aptitude purge apparmour

Good luck! Feedback appreciated.
