debian boot failure with new install


I have tried many times to load Debian on a new HD without any success.
I used bittorrent to download it to my windows vista laptop and preceded to burn the image to a cd using Active@isoburner. But it only gets to where it says boot failure.
AMD 64X2 3800 CPU
1.5 G RAM
ASUS A8N5X MOTHERBOARD
ATI RADEON HD 545O GRAPHICS
HITACHI DESKSTAR SATA 500G HD

Did you run the md5checksum on your download? Instructions should be on the download page. After setting your CD/DVD drive to first boot priority in the BIOS to boot, what exactly happens? How long before you get the "boot failure" message?

It went immediately to the boot failure. I eventually went and downloaded another version of Debian with kde and that worked fine. I did exactly as i did before with the first download. Now my problem is loading my Canon MP560 printer. It has been a while since using any Linux so being explicit with instructions would be helpful. Thanks

I have the download, cnijfilter-mp560-3.20-1-i386-deb.tar.gz but am not sure what to do with it and I am running with an AMD 64x2 CPU.

Extract the file using either your file manager or the command tar -xvzf cnijfilter-mp560-3.20-1-i386-deb.tar.gz. It should extract to a new directory. Look in the directory for a readme file.

If it extracts to a *.deb file, it likely should be installed using gdebi or synaptic.
