major installation problem

OK trying to install from a Kubuntu DVD, I get through the first install phase fine. I reboot the box (removing any discs as instructed) and it tells me:

"Media Change: Please insert the disc labeled 'Kubuntu 5.04 _Hoary Hedgehog_ Release i386 (20050407)' in the drive '/cdrom/' and press enter"

I have done this and it gives me a "99% working" message then requestes again the disc.

I am a n00b to linux, so pardon me if this question seems lame..

Any help is greatly appreciated..

this may or may not be a solution but it is worth a try........

This is what happened: After i burned the iso on a disc it installed completly and just as it showed up in your case it asked me to re-insert again and did not recognize the cd... when i posted the Q on another ubuntu site ( someone suggested that I reburn the disc and try writing to it at a slower write speed to avoid disc errors! I did that and it seemed to work!!

try it out and check the disc for integrity after writing it to the cd!

Not much but hope it helps!!!!

Go Ubuntu!

Hey byen, thanks for the suggestion, fortunately enough, I was able to get my hands on a cd version of ubuntu and installed this instead.

Never did figure out the problem with the original dvd, but I found the solution, it went in the garbage!!! HAHAHA...

Thanks for the suggestion, and next time, I will remember to keep that in the trusty bag of tricks!!
