Installing Ubuntu On Ubuntu?

I love that you guys are using linux to help distribute all of this stuff. That said, it seems a bit silly that when I am on linux there isn't a program I can grab from synaptic or the add/remove applications. I understand that this is designed on a certain release, and that ugrades might make things go wonky, but installing a virtual version of ubuntu on ubuntu?

I don't know much about turnkey, I'm starting to love it, but is that really what is happening?

Installing software directly on your Ubuntu system and installing software as an appliance is a bit different. There are pros and cons, depending on your usage scenario. Note that you can install an appliance on bare metal with the ISO if you don't want to use virtualization. That's up to you.

For more details on the pros and cons see: what is a virtual appliance?

We have out grown our shared hosting and are getting ready to set  up our own server.

This post seems to be the closes to the question. 

can turn key linux joomla be installed with ISO disc to be the main operating system for the server complete with everything for joomla or does it need something else to install it to a cleaned off  used server {ect} virtual machine

 The directions are a little un-clear to me.

thanks in advance!

You can install on bare metal.

Download the ISO and write it to a CD.
On the server, boot from that CD and follow the prompts to install the appliance.
