    The burning process is what trips a few folks up once in a while.

    On the terminal when you are asked for a password it will look like nothing is happening when you type it in. This is disconcerting at first but is nice and secure.

    Hi and thanks. If I reboot, I can go into BIOS by doing F1. The problem is, when I do exit, my desktop will not boot up the 10.04 again. I just get a black page with cursor flashing at top. I have to put in the CD for 10.04 and go through it all over again until get to "boot from hard disk" I scroll with arrow to that and then get 10.04 back again. I cannot shut down. Have leave monitor and tower on all the time in order not to have to do this.

    I see nothing there that would prevent loading newer Linux.

    So, I think you need to reset your BIOS and/or run an update. Your Win XP problem "ACPI wasn't compliant" is related to BIOS. There may be a BIOS reset jumper on the motherboard or you can simply remove the battery for 15 -30 minutes.

    Ok thank you! Never been inside a computer/tower before so will have to look up online where either a reset jumper is or battery.
