Does it work with the alternate installer?

You don't mention entering the BIOS and making the CD Drive the first boot? Have you done this?

Sounds very much like what I ran into.

Do you get to the splash-screen that says Ubuntu and displays five dots that change color from red to white? If so, you can press the ESC key to see what's going on under the covers.

My problem turned out to be a bad burn - Ubuntu is sensitive to quality of CD and burn-speed. I succeeded only after burning at 8x.
