Hey there,
I have been searching the threads for a while now and can't seem to find the right answer. I'm kind of a super noob here, so sorry for any redundancies.

I am trying to dual boot from a mac. I can get to the rEFIt menu and it gives me the choice to boot from the Ubuntu live disc (I've tried both 11.04 and 10.04), but when I select the disc, it goes from the tux screen to a black screen with a cursor and stops there. I can't give it any commands or anything. It simply stops. I haven't been able to even get to the point where I select what language to run it in. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
