Hi! I'm new to these forums, and I'm hoping that someone will be able to help me get Ubuntu 9.10 working. My situation is as follows: I recently downloaded the ISO and burnt it onto a CD-R, and am now attempting to run a LiveCD session on my old Dell Dimension 4500 (1.8 Ghz P4, 512 Mb RAM, GeForce MX420). I know this machine to be fully functional, as it runs both Windows 98 and Damn Small Linux without problems. However, it seems to be having issues with Ubuntu. The CD boots as expected, but when I select the option for a LiveCD session, it goes into the Ubuntu logo screen and hangs there indefinitely. If I hit F6 and delete the "quiet splash --" parameter, I find that it typically hangs somewhere around "* Setting preliminary keymap" or "* Starting early crypto disks". These results are variable - it's gotten as far as something about console fonts, but the system never actually starts up. I tried the standard boot options (noapic, acpi=off, etc) but none of them seem to make any difference. Just for fun, I tried the check CD option in the boot menu, and it checked out fine. Anybody have any idea what the problem is?
