Clint,

When I try to install lvm I get:
W: Failed to fetch
http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/m/mdadm/mdadm_2.4.1-6ubuntu5.2_i386.deb
  302 Moved Temporarily [IP: 195.248.90.35 80]

Then it stops and I can't install any of the components.  I don't know
Ubuntu well enough to know where to go from here.
