unable to install or run live ubuntu CD
newbie. Want to install Ubuntu Dapper Drake 6.06. Trying to install on old machnine (Gateway 2000 G6-300). Error message - "unable to locate RSDP" then it shuts off.
One suggestion from this forum said to turn acpi to off. Unable to find that when I get into the set-up as it boots.
Another suggetion is to run scan disk. Did that.
Third suggestion to enter "irqpoll" someplace in the code. I don't know where to get to that to type that in.
More ideas please.
