Forgot about Ubuntu needing sudo for this.
Thanks for coming to the rescue! Sorry for the delay, I had to hand write all of the info and bring it to this computer.
You're right, when I boot from the CD I am in the live CD environment. If I go to places and computer, I can see the CD drive and the hard drive but I cannot access the hard drive it says "unable to mount the selected volume" and in details:
error: device /dev/hdal is not removable
error: could not execute pmount
after doing sudo fdisk I get the following output:
