So were you able to get it installed? I'm having the same problem only a slightly different error number. I think my number ended in 04. I believe it's the graphics card. I also have an older laptop. The one thing I did notice that it seemed to be all ubuntu / debian based linux os's. I tried most all of them and ran into the same problem with all of them. I am able to install non ubuntu / debian bases os's. Such as PClinux, Mandriva, Fedoria, Suse to name a few and was able to install Windows 7. I'm hoping someone came up with a work around. I'd really like to try ubuntu.
