I have a brand new dell desktop. I'm trying to blow away windows and get ubuntu on it. When I boot from cd, I can get to the main install menu. Everything I try from there results in me ending up at the busybox shell, including just trying to run 'check media'.

Help please...

thanks,
brydon

I found another thread suggesting switching bios to raid. I've done that, which seems terribly odd to me, and the install seems to be progressing now....
