I AM VERY FRUSTRATED!!!!
I have ubuntu 6.06 on a disk. I am currently attempting to install it on my computer. Everything goes fine until its copying files. It gets to 43% and just below the loading bar it says "copying files (900:37 remaining)" and the damn thing stops, you know how I know it stops...the cd-rom stops spinning and the HD LED goes off and everything else freezes, only the mouse will move. THATS IT! I have no other information, nor do I have any way to get any more info cause the thing freezes.So I did my homework. I took out all the pci cards and everything else i don't need, tried again...same thing. I have left the thing on for 3 days thinking maybe it would just take a while, WRONG!! I even tried another disk...nothing. I know not what to do anymore! Any help will be greatly appreciated! Please...im desperate! I am new to linux. HELP ME!!
