I just installed 8 into an old Presario 6000. It has 512MB Ram and the Ubuntu is on a 300GB HD alongside XP on a 40GB HD. Everything looks normal in XP and also when running Ubuntu off the CD, but when I boot into Ubuntu, right after I type in the password, when it changes screens, I get a tiled screen and then the mouse freezes. Help!!!

I resolved it by reinstalling Ubuntu and not changing the display settings. Then I got a GeForce Nvidia card and it installed smoothly and no more problems.
