I just burned the iso this morning. On loading I see the Ubuntu splash screen followed by artifact. I then hear the logon screen bongos while still showing the artifact. No further progress in loading. After 4 attempts I decided to post here.

Glad I settled on a Live CD. The Ubuntu splash screen still shows the same resolution problems with my nvidia graphics chip that they had in June (that Live CD loaded without a hitch). I didn't get to the desktop to see if it is changeable in Display Settings but then that is another challenge.

Thanks in advance.
