    Ubuntu 8.04 32 bit install problems (I/O FD error)

    I am new to Linux and I have been trying to install the latest version of Ubuntu from the bootable cd without any success. I removed the quiet splash entry and it comes up with an I/O fd error when I try to install, then I just get busybox. I cannot even run the live cd part as that doesn't work either.
    My PC specs are as follows:
    Asus P5Q motherboard
    E8400 CPU
    4GB PC5300(1GB X 4)
    8800GT Graphics card
    2 X Samsung 500GB Hard drives

    Please help as this is driving me crazy.

    Hello all
    Im not exactly new with Linux, but im having the same problems
    Specs:
    Asus P5Q motherboard
    Q9300 CPU
    4GB Ram
    X850XT Graphics card
    1 80 Giga Hard drive

    Windows works nicely, except that my DWL-G520 Wlan card causes the system to freeze as soon as drivers are loaded. Im guessing its clearly a driver problem that ubuntu doesnt work...

    I have sorted out the problem now, all I had to do was enable AHCI in the BIOS. The only thing is now I can't find any drivers for the onboard LAN so I have had to use an older PCI LAN card.
