I had windows XP on this machine but I want to just get rid of it and launch my Linux adventure but I am running in the situation that even though I follow all the instructions in the download page of Ubuntu.com, something is just not doing what it is suppossed to. After the downloading is done, and I get the icon for the application for Linux and click on it, nothing happens. Should I just format the driver, buy or burn a Linux CD or should I just keep looking around for a better download?
Any advice would be really appreciated.
PS. The reason I am posting this problem here is because I could not find a way of posting my questions in a new thread. I apologize for this inconvenience.
I encourage you to start your own thread; however w/o knowing the spec's of your computer and what method you are using to install Ubuntu it's
hard to advise you.
After you download the image from the Ubuntu website you have to burn that downloaded image to a brand new CD/DVD and than installtion should be a success for you. Set in your BIOS the boot order for your computer to boot to the CDROM drive to see the LINUX CD and than after the CD boots all the way. Double click on the ICON of that live CD "Install Ubuntu"
Your Win's XP should have a program to burn that CD for you.
