I don't know the difference between the Ubuntu Desktop CD and Ubuntu Alternative CD. If i try to install Ubuntu Alternative then I face any difference. If i face any differences then what is that?

The installation process is the main difference.

If you install with the Alternate CD, make sure to select "Ubuntu Desktop" to be installed towards the end, otherwise you'll end up with a commandline interface only.

The system you end up with is the same.

the first cd contains a live cd as well as the install, the alternate cd just installes the operating system.
