what do you mean by "installing the kernel"?? we need some useful information to help you. (and it's a kernel, not a kernal...)

How can we help when you fail to tell us what error/failure message(s) are displayed when the failure occurs?

Consider using a "Live" distribution to see what happens when you try to run Linux directly from a CD (or DVD if your bro's PC supports DVD booting).
