Ubuntu - GRUB install issues
New to Linux, have been wanting to play with Beryl on Linux, but having initial problems of installing Ubuntu 6.10 with GRUB.
When I run the installation from the Live CD I have been unable to use ext3, but when I choose ext2 it starts to install everything just fine.
/dev/sda2 (50GB) (/ or root)
/dev/sda3 (50GB) (swap)
Installation partition for GRUB: (sda2) (is this correct or is there a different syntax that I need to use here? It gives me (hd0) as the default.
After installing the Ubuntu OS, it then tries to install GRUB, but gets "Error: unable to install GRUB, Critical error failed" (paraphrased.)
ext3 won't let me even get past 15% of installation of the OS, but ext2 will let me get all the way to 94% when it tries to install GRUB on the root (/).
Should I download Ubuntu 7.10 and see if that solves the issue or will that not really change anything?
Running this on a Compaq Presario V4000, 1.5 GHz, 512MB RAM
