Ubuntu 5.10 live pls help

I am new on linux and somebody told me that ubuntu is one of the best distributions. I downloaded it and when i boot from cd everything seems to be fine. Then i hit enter to install it and everything stopps on "Uncompressing Linux... Ok, booting the kernel". I let the notebook run for a long while but nothing happened.
Anyone knows what's wrong?
Maybe its because of the hardware?

Intel® Centrino™ Mobiltechnologie mit Intel® Pentium® M Prozessor 760 (2MB L2 Cache/ 2.0GHz/ 533MHz FSB), Microsoft® Windows® XP Home Edition, Intel® 915PM Chipsatz - Intel® PRO/Wireless 2200BG, 15.4" Acer CrystalBrite WXGA TFT Display, ATI Mobility™ Radeon® X700 mit 256 MB PCIe, 1.024MB (2*512) DDR2, 100GB HDD, DVD-Dual Double Layer, 56Kbps Modem, 10/100/1000 LAN, WLAN 802.11g, Bluetooth, 4-in-1 Card-Reader
