Hi! Im big newbie in Linux, so please help me!

First, i go to BIOS, and make First Booting Device - CD-ROM.
Then i reboot my pc and run Linux installation.
Then i select English and click to Install.
After several minutes, i got this message.

BusyBox v1.10.2 (Ubuntu 1:1.10.2-1 ubuntu6) built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.

(initramfs) _
P.S. Somethink like that...

What iu should do? Maybe some command to console?


Second question.
I need to make partition before start to install Linux, right? I can make it via Windows with Magi Partition soft, but what file type i need to select? NTFS, FAT, FAT32?

I know I should be able to tell from what you've written already, but I can't - what CD are you using? If it's not the latest Ubuntu disc, I'd say get the latest one and see how it goes. As for partitioning, the later Ubuntu install discs did this all for you, very easy and straightforward.

Welcome to Ubuntu.
What are your system specs ? in particular RAM and display adapter ?
Ubuntu uses the ext3 format by default. You can either make a partition in Windows or get Ubuntu to resize your Windows partition if necessary.
