I've just downloaded Kubuntu 8.04 KDE4 Remix.
I was so excited because i wanted to try out the new kde4 interface(it looks so nice). So i downloaded wubi, and started the installation.
It made me restart, and then i saw that it modified my boot loader so that i have xp and kubuntu 8.04.
I selected kubuntu and didnt't press any more key's.
I waited a bit and then i saw it rebooted my machine!!!!
I made another attempt but the same. I the press "esc" after i selected "kubuntu" at the boot loader and selected some other "options", even live cd, or safe graphics. None of them worked.
I even tryied a cd and that doesnt work either .
But i when i use the cd and select "try kubuntu ..." it stars loading and eventually i end up to a console of some sort that has a message above :

"BusyBox v1.1.3 (Debian 1:1.1.3-5ubuntu12) ....."
"Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands ... "
and below
(initramfs)_ (here is the cursor)


So is the anything else i need to know to install kubuntu (or ubuntu for that matter) ?!

Can anyone help me ?!
