I have changed the settings to read CD first. Then, I put the CD in and re-booted.

The Ubuntu logo came up, I selected english and started the installation. It had a loading screen for a while and then that went and now it is just a black screen with a flashing white line at the top left. Is this normal? Should I just wait or is there something I need to be doing.

Thanks

It's not supposed to go to a black screen. You should get the window of the installer. Reboot your computer and try going into the desktop. If that doesn't work you might have a bad cd.

Let me know if booting into the desktop works for you. If it does then try installing from there.
