Can't get past initial login (10.04)

I think I just ruined my family's computer! Any help would be greatly appreciated....

The system appears to be accepting my user name password combination, but isn't letting me go any further.

Here goes: after running through the initial installation process for version 10.04, I enter in my user name and password, the screen flashes black for a second, and I get bounced back to the login screen.

I know I am using the correct user name and password, as 1) I just created it in during the installation process (it's very simple, definitely not making a mistake), and 2) When I have tried the wrong user name/password combinations to test, the system catches it immediately and says that this is incorrect info.

Background/possible clues:

I was attempting to replace XP. Rather than partition the disk and install them side by side to be safe, I was an idiot and decided do a complete replace, so I'm basically stuck with this.

Setting up HP Printer via USB print server

I've been working at this for a few days. I've searched all over and as far as I can tell, I'm setting up my printer correctly. I have hpcups (latest version.) My printer is an HP Officejet 5610. It works perfectly if I set it up directly (USB to Ubuntu machine.) No configuring is required. I just plug it in and it already has the drivers. However, when I set it up through the print server, it acts very strangely. It appears to start sending the file, the printer starts to pull the paper, then it just hangs. The printer states "printing" and stays in that state until I turn it off. CUPS states that the printer is "processing" and it stays that way until I cancel the print job.

I'm Having a Major Problem booting Ubuntu

For the last couple of days, I've been attempting to install Ubuntu 10.04 on my computer from CD. I'm switching over from Windows XP, because Ubuntu seems to take care of everything I need to do on a PC. I burned the .iso image (burned the contents... I didn't burn the actual .iso file) to a 700MB CD, and the burning process finished. The PC reads the burned CD as Ubuntu Linux, and when I boot the CD from Windows, it gives me the options to try it, and reboot my computer to install, et cetera.
