http://www.ubuntux.org – My name is Tom Ghormley I live in Sacramento, CA My email address is [email protected] I purchased a new Windows 7/HP laptop specifically to install and learn about Ubuntu. I downloaded 10.04 on my iMac, burned it to disc and spent an hour trying to get my HP to recognize it. No luck, so I used a 9.10 disc from a magazine. I get the initial screen, choose a language and select either "try it" or "install it". The CD drive chatters happily for a while, all the time the screen is blank. Aft (Distributions)
