    Question Having Problems Installing Ubuntu on laptop...

    Ok i have this super old IBM Thinkpad R31 and i installed Ubuntu 4.10 on it since thats the only thing that would run on it and every time it goes to this point *Look At Image* it freezes can someone tell me why and how to fix this....

    Computer Specs:
    Processor: Intel Celeron 1.13 GHz
    RAM: 256 MB
    Hard Drive: 20 GB
    Graphics Controller: Intel 830MG


    NOTE: I know Ubuntu 4.10 isn't supported anymore but this is pissing me off.
