I am REALLY new to Ubuntu. I am so new that I don't even know what Ubuntu can do. I am still stuck trying to install.
I am attempting it on an AMD K6. I was having problems wiping the drive (it wouldn't allow me to boot from CD - would always load Windows). That was successfully finished but now trying to install. So when the install initiates, it starts, Ubuntu logo comes up and soon the computer completely powers off as if power plug pulled. I've tried Ubuntu. I've tried Kubuntu. Just today I tried Xubuntu.
I wonder if the computer is powerful enough but I've read elsewhere that it shouldn't be an issue. Previously I've had XP Professional on it. Windows loads perfectly fine. So I don't know what to try next or what to rule out.
