Have a little problem/annoyance. I was trying to use a Live CD with Lucid Lynx 10.04 x86 edition and the speed was incredibly slow. I took more than 10 minutes just to start. I noticed the CD drive stopped spinning (or spinning so slow I couldn't hear it) at times, then starting up again. I also noticed multiple i/o error in the logs after it finally booted up.
The reason why I think this is a bug and not my drive/cd is simple:
a) The MD5ed the iso and even made two CDs with different burners.
b) I tried older Ubuntu as well as several other Linux distros and the Live CD boot time is much faster (1-2 min).
c) Tried the CD on a way, way older ancient laptop and i booted just fine and much faster.
(I will provide any other info if needed).
