Trying to install Ubuntu 9.04 on my AMD 64 cpu based PC using Nvidia video card. On boot, I see the Ubuntu menu, then the splash screen and then the video goes scrambled with nothing intelligible on the screen.

Is there a boot switch I can use to overcome this?

Thanks

Carl

At the initial screen (after booting from the CD), press F4 for the safe graphics mode.

That fixed it -- thanks
