Trying to install ubunto 10.04!!!

I downloaded new version of ubuntu 10.04 iso file, and trying to burn this file to cd, but it gives me this crap.

An error occurred while extracting files.

Command not found.

Command Line Output
isoinfo: Short read on old image

Do I have to extract that file or just burn it to cd? It's supposed to be 676MB, but when I downloaded, it was only 31MB.... I need your help...

If it's only 31mb then the ISO obviously has not downloaded properly, try downloading it again.

As Krane said. You didn't get the full ISO. Even after you get the full Iso. You probably should md5sum check it first before doing any burning.

Ubuntu 10.04 is still testing, not stable. It will not be released until next month. If you are new to Linux, I recommend the current stable version (9.10). Here are instructions for burning the .iso to CD:
