boot from Ubuntu 8.10 live CD results in black screen can not install
I am trying to install Ubuntu 8.10 from a live CD. when I boot I get the menu to boot to live Ubuntu. I select this and then the splash screen shows the Ubuntu logo and the brown bar across the screen. than I hear the drum role but I get a black screen.
I have an ATI video card on this machine.
I tried to use the safe graphics mode...same result.
I have had Ubuntu 8.04 working before although I seem to recall having this problem with 7.10 as well.
I did some googleing but could not find anything that involved a live CD.
I would like to install Ubuntu but not sure how I can do that if I can't even boot to Live CD.
Thanks in advance for any help.
