I am trying to install Ubuntu 12.10 on my very old computer (1998 Pentium III). It does not have an OS on it at the moment so i have already changed the setting (on the blue screen) to boot fronm CD-ROM. Once it boots it gets as far as the main first screen for UBUNTU (Try without installing... and some other options...) this is where i seem to be having difficulties. A dialog box pops up saying...
'you are leaving the graphical boot menu and starting the text mode interface'
And gives 2 options 'OK' & 'Cancel', however the dialog box is flashing and will not allow me to choose an option.
When i press 'Pause/Break' is stops flashing but then restarts flashing when i press any other key.
