Please help with Ubuntu


Hello everyone.

Yesterday I downloaded Ubuntu wanting to try it. When it finished downloading, I burnind the Iso on to a disc at 8x. Turned off computer, changed cd-rom to first boot priority, put in the disc and restarted.

The Ubuntu screen came up, I hit enter on Run or Install, and in upacks all the stuff then says:

Uncompressing Linux... Ok, booting the kernel.

It stops right there.

I tried installing it on my brothers computer, and it worked.

I also tried changing the cd-drive on my computer, and the hard drive, and no sucess.

*I also have a pressed versionm, but no luck either.

Specs:

X2 3800\
7800 GTX
200 GB WD
2 GB XMS
A8N*32
CD BURNER and shit.

Chances are that the kernel that comes with Ubuntu doesn't know
the chipset of your brand-new shiny motherboard. A good rule of
thumb for Linux & Hardware is NOT to go for bleeding edge, but
rather to lag behind at least 3-4 months (will keep your wallet
happier, too). Have a google for linux and our motherboard.


Cheers,
Tink
