I suggest you ...

Allow distros in other mounts such as /sdcard-ext

I would love to see an enhancement to allow the distro installs to be placed on /sdcard-ext. The Motorola Razr Maxx has an internal 8GB storage that uses /sdcard, the actually removable SD card is mounted at /sdcard-ext and supports up to 32GB.

        Symbolic links got some distros to start on sd-ext but the only way ive gotten it to work is to modify the actual script... not hard to do, but would be a great feature to incude out of the box

        I don't know anything about symbolic links so I guess I will have to look into it. Even so, it would be nice to be able to point it to look other places, then it could support multiple versions of Ubuntu to be loaded, or multiple Ubuntu's with different configurations.

        why not use symbolic links? Is it possible in Android? Creating /sdcard-ext/ubuntu with all the files and linking /mnt/sdcard/ubuntu to it would be perfect
