ok when i went to install ubuntu at around 15% it froze. I left it there for a while it stayed at 15. So i shut it down. Now when i to install it again it gives me an i/o error. so i shut it down. I took the cd out and ran it again. With no cd in it it tells me 0 partitions. press f1 to retry and f2 for setup.
"Ok" so i hit setup, ok theres a hardrive init about 40000 mb.
Whats the proplem. So i try Knoppix. It wont let me install it for some root proplems. Thats besides the point. Ok now i have a computer that ever scince i ran ubuntu and it "Froze" wont do jack.

So wtf.

can you boot into the Live CD (the ubuntu install disc)?
You should also try the Check CD option when starting the Live CD to ensure the disc is good. If it's not, the install can go bad like you described.
