I downloaded and tried using the live cd to install ubuntu 8.04, but whenever i try using the demo or install features of the disk, it just goes to an ash shell. when i try it in another computer, it works perfectly and can be installed without problems. how can i install ubuntu? :confused:

Edit: i also tried the alternate install disk but it stops and says that it cant read from the disk. at this point the cd drive will not open. i tried rebooting and the cd drive then would not open or boot from the cd until the cd was removed by forcing the drive open with a paper clip.

any help???

the computer has:
ASUS A8N-E motherboard
AMD Athalon 64 3700+
1 GB ram
NVIDIA GeForce 7950 GT
