I've finally decided to give Linux a good look and figured Ubuntu was a good place to start since it has the ability to boot and run entirely off of a DVD. So I downloaded the latest 64-bit version, burned the .iso to a DVD and rebooted my computer. Ubuntu started booting up, it asked me if I wanted to install the OS or just run it off of the DVD, I chose running it just off the DVD. It loaded for a couple seconds and then gave me the "General error mounting filesystems" error message. Below is my current computer setup:
Core i7 2600 3.4ghz
Phillips Lite-On DVD+-RW 16x/48x
Can anyone offer advice? I'm a complete newb when it comes to Linux, but fairly adept when it comes to Windows and computers in general. Thanks in advance.
