lol i mentioned i had a 64bit cpu and the cd. so it's not that. i went straight for burning it to install, maybe i should burn it on a slower setting? i can burn 48x, should i slow it down to like 16x?

1. The 32-bit CD should work on a 64-bit CPU.
2. Common wisdom on these forums is to burn the CD at the slowest possible setting that your software will allow. Check the download image for errors before burning, and once you get to the point of booting from the CD, use the menu option to do further checks for errors.

I believe there is an option in the grub menu, if I am not mistaken. :)
