I'm having trouble installing 10.04.1. The machine I am trying to install on is 5 or 6 years old machines. In fact I tried it with a much older machine too. Each time when I get to formatting and writing the OS to the disk it stalls. I checked the CD for defects and in fact burnt another disk but on both machines it stalls in the same place. I am wondering whether I need to download an older version of Ubuntu Server. Both machines had run it without a problem before. Anyone have any ideas what the problem might be?

Questions:

1. Did you burn the ISO at the slowest possible (I always go for 4x to avoid errors)
2. What are your specs (just in case there is something funny there)
