The disk didn't finalize. I erased it. I downloaded ImgBurn and now have something on my desktop called grab and burn?
edit: Grab and burn seems to be working.

yeah that looks correct. all you should have to do now is reboot your PC and boot to CD.
Forgive me, but your avatar says your a newbie...? Are you sure?
yes, still a newbie.... I have lots to learn but I am getting there. My status was "just joined" till I hit my 100th post. I just joined the ranks of newbie.
Oh, I'm learning as I go, lol. Are you new to Linux? I don't want to re-boot wrong. This computer is my only access. I live in the middle of nowhere. Do you know if it automatically overwrites windows?
No it will not automatically overwrite windows. when you boot up it will ask you if you want to try ubuntu or install. If you just click on "try" then it will run everything off the CD.
Note: doing it this way you cannot install programs and it runs a lot slower because its running off a cd, when you do the install it will run a lot faster.
If you pick the option to install it should give you two options.
1) is to overwrite the old OS and install ubuntu.
2) is to do "something else" this is where you can install it along side of windows. I would backup everything you really need just in case there are any issues. ( I dont think there should be)
