Debian 6.0.1a installation failed


Hello!

I'am using Ubuntu 10.10, and wish to install a Debian OS.
I downloaded the file "debian-6.0.1a-amd64-netinst.iso.
(My motherboard is a 945CG-F7 with INTEL PENTIUM DUAL CPU E2160)
I recorded the file on CD as "iso" (following instructions from Internet).
Grub tried to read the CD but than started Ubuntu OS. Nothing happened.

Can you help me?
Thank you (and sorry for my english... I hopefully read much better then write...).

Welcome to LQ

Did you set the BIOS to boot from CD?
Did you checked the md5sum from the download?
Did you burned the CD as an ISO?
Sometimes it helps to burn the CD at a lower speed.

Kind regards
