Installing on Dell Latitude D20?


I am wondering if there is a how-to step by step guide to installing Linux on a Dell Latitude D20? I want to competely get rid of Windows XP and all my files and start fresh with it. It is my old laptop and I have a Macbook Pro which is my primary computer now.

I tried installing xubuntu via disc (which I burned) and the computer would not boot from the disc.

Can you tell us

1. exactly which version of Xubuntu
2. did you burn as file or as (iso) image; you must do the latter
3. you should be able to checksum the burnt image before use; see website you got iso image from
4. what do you mean 'would not boot from disc'? Have you checked the settings in the bios?
Exactly what error msg did you get when you tried.
