I'm a newbie to linux and was talked into trying ubuntu. I purchased a used GATEWAY laptop with an AMD turion 64 mobile chip. I first tried installing ubuntu-9.10-server-amd64 and it just took too long to complete. After about 1 hour I cancelled the install. I then switch to ubuntu-9.10-desktop-i386 and it took just as long. I at first that it was the CD but was able to recognize both CDs under windows xp media(installed on the same machine). I then took the i386 and successfully installed it in on a laptop that uses and an intel chip. I tried again on the GATEWAY AMD turion 64 laptop and it still doesn't work. Am I doing something wrong here will Ubuntu not run on an AMD chip ?
