[ 0.601118] [<c0104087>] kernel_thread_helper+0x7/0x10

then cursor is blinking
Which edition I have to use on it?

Ditto on this.

Toshiba Satellite AMD64 2.3ghz, ATI RadeonHD 4200 video, 4gb ram

It hangs on this screen.

I've tried Ubuntu 10.04, 9.10 both 64 and 32 bit versions, live and alternate cd's. I tried Kubuntu 10.04, and 9.10, and only Kubuntu 9.10 went past that screen after 15 minutes, but at setup, the mouse and keyboard didn't work. I've tried letting it sit on that screen for over an hour because i've seen linux installs hang before, but still nothing in over an hour.

Please help, I miss my linux, and my old computer is dying.
