Im trying to install Ubuntu for the first time, and I'm doing it on an external hard drive (FAT32).
I tried with versions 9.04 and 8.04. On version 9.04 the installation remains in "Creating virtual drives" for hours, until I cancel it.
On version 8.04 it stops a bit on that step and then suddenly finishes and says that I need to reboot, but when I do, its impossible to start Ubuntu - the computer either restarts or remains black until I turn it off.
Im running Windows XP and the installation is to be done through a ISO file.
I'd appreciate all the help you can provide. Thank you a lot!
