What version are you trying to install? Edgy (the most recent one)? Did you boot from a LiveCD and try to install from there, or did you try to do a "traditional" installation?

Oh, and what do you mean it doesn't fill your screen?

It is edgy and I installed it via live cd, and it doesn't fill my screen meaning it is cut off towards the end about 4 inches, and i know it works, because YDL was on it before.

Is your resolution too low? (i.e. 800 x 600)

<edit>Have you tried downloading the installation disc? It is not command line.</edit>

All the Ubuntu Live CDROMS are also installation disks.
