    Are you installing off of a livecd? Maybe you should try the alternate CD, it's usually a little better at picking up hardware.

    I definitely would recommend the alt cd at this point. It's pretty good about detecting bad hardware. =p as I already said

    It's basically the bare bones of an Ubuntu install. There's no pretty GUI affects or nice things you can do. It's all basic graphics and simple white and black. But it gets the job done.

    There should be a link on ubuntu.com

    http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download

    At the bottom where you select the location there is a small box, beside it tells you to click if you want the alternate cd. Check that box, and you'll have to burn the iso and put it on a cd and begin install.

    burning the ISO or installing from the alt?

    Yes everything will be identical once it's installed. The only difference is you don't have the RAM hog of a live cd, and it's actually a little faster.
