View Full Version : Installation Problem

February 28th, 2011, 07:23 AM
I'm having problems with installation of ubuntu, i'll get past the prompt "Install Ubuntu" get a loading screen then several screens of text. It then stops on the screen:

Linux ubuntu 2.6.35-22-generic #33-Ubuntu SMP "the date and time" UTC 2010 i686
Ubuntu 10.10

Welcome to Ubuntu!
*Documentation: https://help.ubuntu.com/

To run a command as administrator (user "root"), use "sudo <command>".
See "man sudo_root" for details


Seems like it wants a prompt for something but i have no experience with this kind of stuff, so help would be greatly appreciated
