How do you reinstall Ubuntu? I want to replace 8.10 with 8.4. I do not care about any of my files I just want to start over.

When I put the Disk with 8.04 in it just goes right into the login screen. When I log in the disk just sits on my desktop.

Go into the BIOS and make sure you have picked CD/DVD as the first bootable device. Otherwise, it's just going to boot from the harddrive first.

And if Ubuntu is the only OS on your machine, just tell the installer to use the while disk when you get to the partition screen.
