hi all, i'm new to the whole Ubuntu/ Lubuntu OS.

I have an old dell laptop so i decided to install ubuntu on it. I then ran in to graphics card problems and it would boot to the desktop sometimes but overall didn't work well. So i decided to go for Libuntu. But when I am installing, and it reaches the point where it has the small check-list (Wireless connection, 4.4gb free etc etc...), the installation never seems to progress.

It is staying on the screen PREPARING TO INSTALL LUBUNTU with the little check list and nothing happens. The CD drive comes to a hault and the cursor becomes a spinning circle.

It's been like that for around 45-50 mins. I've tried restarting the installation but same problem over and over.

Please, any help is really appreciated

Thank you.
