I am having installation problems.
I am trying to install ubuntu 9.04 with "live cd"

when i get to the partitioning screen, it doesn't allow me to click on anything. And nothing appears in the partitioning area.

if i press next it gives me the "No root file system is defined.

Please correct this from the partitioning menu"

please help me. thank you!

Did you run a media check to ensure that your live CD didn't have issues when you burned it? I had a problem where the live CD would start the computer up to the point of the GUI and then ask for a password. For some reason, a corrupt portion of the CD was causing this behavior.

ya.. i checked twice if the cd was alright and it passed both times.

Sounds like either a bad download, a bad burn, or a bad cd. I would reburn the download as you say it is good to a different cd. Do not burn more than 4x. That often helps in cases of bad burns.
