    Ubuntu 9.10 install on Mac5,1 hangs at black screen with blinking "_"

    I've installed rEFIt and got the bootcamp partition working, but when I boot from the Ubuntu CD, and click "Try Ubuntu without making changes", it goes to the next black screen and with the blinking "_", and just blinks over and over. I let it sit for about 30 min, rebooted the computer, tried again, same thing.

    Any ideas?

    Try to boot with the "C" key pressed...
