    Give a little bit more information please. Also, you're trying to install off livecds? It'd probably be best to install an actual distro, rather than a live cd.

    error message

    ok with two distros (ubuntu and kubuntu) this is the message i got:
    [17179723.904000] hdc:ide_intr: huh? expected null handler on exit
    repeats this a couple of times with slightly different numbers at the start
    the goes
    IO error on device hdc, logical block

    all i can assume from these messages is that it has had some sort of p[roblem with the hard drive from the keywords, hdc and ide
    any ideas?
