This crap won't go away and won't let my install Ubuntu 10.04 in any circumstances.

This is my first time using Linux and it's not encouraging. I've done all the md5 tests and usb uploads and it's been as useful as a pocket in my underwear... (think about it, it's effing useless).

If there's a problem with my HD, there isn't one with my hcsd and I get the same errno 5 error there. Going out of my head here

Installing 10.04 it never gets further than 54% because of an I/O error that linux calls a errno 5 error. I've tried everything on the forums and nothing.

First take a look here:

Come back if there is nothing there that solves it.
