Real Error or ID10T error?
I am wanting to build a file server fr my home network. So, I downloaded and installed FreeBSD 8.1 last night.
Wanting a more familiar interface, I downloaded and tried to install KDE. It loads and asks for language. Then I select "Install kubuntu".
The kubuntu logo and a progress meter pop up for a while.
Eventually the screen goes black and nothing else happens. I have to reboot. If I take the CD out it boots to FreeBSD.
Am I missing something? Kubuntu never asks anything regarding partitioning.
Is FreeBSD an os like DOS and kubuntu a GUI like Win 3.1 or is kubuntu more like XP with a GUI built in to the os?
If it is the latter, how do I get it to kill the FreeBSD install?
"Try kubuntu without installing" does the same thing.

Not being a BSD user. When I run into a Problem like loading a Linux Live session like Kububtu (I don't run kDE either). I look for some boot cheat codes first.
Try the Safe graphics option at the boot screen first. Above Link expains it.
To completely get rid of any partitions on drives or wipe a drive completely.
I use Parted Magic . You can boot it also as a live cd also.
If successful booting into a Try Kubuntu without installing, You can use Gparted in kubuntu to delete the BSD partition also.

Kubuntu is a Linux distribution. Linux is command line, too. Kubuntu comes with KDE desktop environment by default, so you do not have to install it.
