I left the box overnight doing memtest86+ to find:

passed 10
errors 0

UPDATE:
Since the Ubuntu CD was giving me trouble I succesfuly downloaded, MD5SUM checked, SHA1SUM checked, burned and installed the lastest CD release of the following distros:

OpenSuse
Fedora
Mepis
Mandriva
PcLinux

Only the mepis install gave me trouble. It complained about a bios bug related to MMConfig. I updated my bios and after that Mepis has been running smooth.

Maybe this bug was giving Debian and Ubuntu's MDSUM a hard time.

Now I have my hand full of linux so I'll stop worrying about it.

Thank you all for your support

So this leaves me to the conclusion that the ubuntu alternate CD is either doing a bad job configuring my CD ROM or is just not lixbie's desktop friendly.


Thanks all for your support
