    I did try to install Ubuntu 7.10, and it worked beautifully.
    I even ran ll the 227 updates.
    Then it offered to upgrade to 8.04, and I went for it.
    Everything up to now works fine. BUT when ubuntu requested that I reboot after upgrading to 8.04, at reboot it game me the same error I got when I tried to run the 8.04 install disk, which is the following:

    "BusyBox v1.1.3 l(Debian 1:1.1.3-5ubuntu12) Built=in shell (ash)
    (intramfs) [269.081476] usb 1-1 : device not accepting address 2, error -71"

    I am back to square one: nothing works after that I have to abort.
    Can anybody tell me something about that message? That is obviously where the problem is. It doesn't help to suggest different ways of installing, until we can find out what that message means.

    Thanks for everyone who contributed. I am getting at the end of my efforts. Too discouraged to continue with Ubuntu. (They said there was 150,000 linux users ready to help! ) Does any of those 150,000 know what that message means?
