    Unable to Install?

    I am currently trying to install Ubuntu on my Windows XP computer. The live CD works great. But when I go to install it gets to about 22% and then gives me a error message. Bad disk, Hard Drive or Drive. Downloaded this software twice burned twice and tried about 30 times to install using two different drives and two diffrent hard drives. Any ideas? Thank You

    At 22%, I'll assume you've already gone through the partitioning setup.
    I did have this happen to me also. I found on certain drives, burning the cd at a lower speed (eg: 10x) solved the problem.
