I only have ubuntu because i think it might make me a little cooler. But seriously, here is the story. I have some windows xp on my computer, and one day it broke. haha so i thought on ho and i want to fix it to play my wonderful lovely video games, but the boot volume or whatever was corrupted and so i had to run the fixboot command from the windows repair disk. Now this could all be like unrelated and stuff but it is what happened just before i had this problem with my ubuntu (8.04) i dont remember which version of that i have because when i try to boot into ubuntu now it endlessly loads on the orange bar boot screen. ok so i am all like ok. i know the drill and i put my ubuntu disk in there and and then i got it all the way to the password screen on running the live disk option and oh noes my ubuntu doesnt know the alphabet anymore all shows up as boxes. and even when i know i put my password in right it didnt let me log in. bullhonky!
