Kubuntu 64bit Live CD
So I'm desperately tryin to get my feet wet in the Linux world, but can't seem to get a live CD running. I've downloaded and burned the iso, restarted and booted from the cd drive, and when Kubuntu loads up I try to run it as a live cd but then the screen goes black with a blinking cursor and my drive stops spinning. I'm I supposed to wait like an hour for it to start going again? cause I've left it for a good 5 minutes, or am I doing something wrong?
