Hello forum fellows,
Just starting to get immersed in linux, as with a lot of people through devices like the eee. I was looking to install ubuntu, but i have a problem when i run through. The device boots and prompts for language, then command. I select the first option, trying without changing my system. Then it comes up with the ubuntu logo and the timer bar. After this, about 15 seconds, it goes to a blank screen with a command line cursor. This then proceeds to go and display "[number] buffer read i/o error". There is something else but i can't quite remember. It then goes through a number of them, upto about 700 (about the size of the disc in MB). Then it comes up with a prompt with a help menu.
Just wondering whether i am supposed to enter a command or if it is not meant to go down that path at all. Many thanks in advance.
