Help installing Ubuntu 7.10
Hey everyone, a real Linux newbie hear. This is my first try at installing Linux. Im trying to install the Ubuntu 7.1 desktop i386 to my new PC. It has an empty HD and a AMD phenom, with 2gig of RAM. Im sure I burned the iso correctly (Is this the right version for my pc?), the trouble is during the installation. On the first menu I choose the first option to imstal Ubuntu, and a loading bar comes up. When it's finished loading, a black screen appears, and says Checking battery status and Running local boot scripts. It says they are OK, but I am at a loss at this part. I can enter text, but no commands seem to work. Am I just typing the wrong thing or is something else the matter? I'm sorry if this is a stupid question with an obvious answer, but I don't know what to do. I have searched the internet and found nothing. Please help!
