    Try Ubuntu Alternate Installation CD. Its not LiveCD and it has text based installer. Alternate Installation CD works fine with most of Graphics Card and its easy to install Graphics driver after successful install.

    Are you planning to dual boot with Windows OS or other Linux OSes? I would suggest you to create partition(s) for Linux before starting installation.

    hello,
    I tried Ubuntu samething happen, than I tried opensuse, it work only on failsafe (if not, black screen) and now it's only log in command line, it's not even booting completely.

    To much hours I spend try to learn linux with no result at all. I think I will give up, my computer background is at a level that I dont see the advantage of linux on windows
