Trust me, this is not a stupid question!

It sounds like your CD may be corrupted. Did you do a md5sum check after you downloaded it? Right click on the ISO and select "md5su" and then compare that with the sum supplied at the download site.

Second thought would be to determine that you have the CD in the CD reader. Some computers (mine) can't load some Live CD's from the DVD drive.

Good luck and don't let my weak answer discourage you-lots of others will follow.

Before the cant access tty error comes up several mount and directory errors are reported saying that they all failed.
