    X/Ubuntu hangs on boot, can't install

    The LiveCDs for Xubuntu 11.10 32bit, Xubuntu 11.10 64bit and Ubuntu 11.10 32bit hang just before the Desktop loads preventing me from using an applications like Ubiquity. for example. The O/S gets to the point where I can do an ALT + F2 and type firefox. Firefox loads but then the whole O/S just hangs before I can enter a website URL or use Google. After it hangs, the hard drive and CD drive stop. I even tried CTRL + ALT + F1-F7 so I can login as root and start up top. But even top stops updating and I can’t switch to other virtual terminals. How could I better describe my problem? I am writing this forum thread on my existing Xubuntu 11.04 64bit.
