I attempted to install Ubuntu 8.04 on my Dell Laptop. I get to stage 7 or 7 in the step up and it hangs on 15% completion of the install. I checked the disk for file errors and none were reported. My computer is a Pentium III with 256 mg of Ram. What should I do to complete install?

Are you using the LiveCD (desktopCD)? Perhaps you should consider using the alternate CD since you only have 256MB of RAM.

With only 256mb of ram, you will have to use the Alternate CD instead of the Live CD (which requires 384mb minimum) to install. Or give Xubuntu a try. Good luck!
