I am trying to install a newer version on Xubuntu on a old Dell latitude that has an old version of xubuntu on it. I burned (using my macbook) the new Hardy Heron iso to disk and could not get it to detect that iso disk at startup to install/upgrade to hardy heron. The current version of xubuntu installed will not detect the wireless card and I had a friend familiar with xubuntu do all his best to fix it and it did not work. He suggested a fresh install.

What am I doing wrong.

Thanks

Can you read the CD you burned in Xubuntu?
Did you burn an ISO or did you extract it first and then burn the results to CD? Do you have your laptop set to boot from CD?
