Took a look at deploying the Perseus application today. It's a fairly involved install, but it shouldn't be difficult. I'll do it in a VM, which I now have set up, with the required frameworks installed. Rather than using an Ubuntu LAMP stack, I chose to go with XAMPP (http://apachefriends.org), which I've had good luck with in the past. Grabbed Tomcat 6, Ant, and the other bits and pieces. The MySQL config doesn't look problematic, just "innodb_data_file_path=ibdata1:500M". The rest should be straightforward, too.
