read post #2 again. boot from the cd, and follow the prompts. and you should probably read this:

Hey thanks.
Am I going to have driver problems?
Also can you tell me in advance what options I should choose after booting the disc.

And the size of the DVD I am downloading is 4.28 gigabyte.
In the howtoburn it says it should be 700 megabyte?

you're going to have to run the computer from the cd to answer that question. and when you actually run the cd you'll see the options.

where are you getting this download from?????? go to www.ubuntu.com and download it there.

Problem is I dont have a empty CD. Or can I burn the 700 meg one on a DVD?
I only have bunch of empty DVDs. Its night, and I really need to install Ubuntu today...

So do you think that the 4.2 gig is a fake one?

you didn't answer my question. where is this download comming from? yes you can put 700mb on a dvd. but why waste a dvd. blank cd's are cheap. and you don't "need" to install it that bad. you can wait, a little longer.

Linking to where I am downloading might be illegal. But its a torrent.

Price difference between CDs/DVDs isnt that much.
ANd thanks for letting me know that I can also burn it on a DVD.

just get ubuntu the correct way. either order a cd, or download it from the ubuntu website. why would you want some pirated version? are they going to give you support? that bogus version is bound to be so full of crap, that you're going to have a hard time getting help here.

Well I am downloading the 698 megabyte one from the official site.
Why would I waste time downloading a 4 gig file, which is illegal...

I thought I cant burn the 698MB one on a DVD..
Anyways thanks, downloading it is almost done, very fast speed indeed.
