I downloaded Ubuntu recently and burned it to a cd (checked for cd integrity and it was fine) and I rebooted to boot from the cd but I got an error message when I selected "install Ubuntu".

I checked here and it suggested changing quiet splash-- with a couple of commands (nothing, noapic nolapic, acpi=off, irqpoll, lapic pci=routeirq) I tried all of them and none of them worked.

Was wondering if anyone else had any other ideas or if there was a way to install Ubuntu straight from vista desktop?
