    ubuntu 10.10 bootup issues--


    ok so i want to use linux but i am having some issues getting it to work on my system. my desktop is a p4 3.4gig with 512 DDR. When I insert my ubuntu CD it starts loading but then i get this screen/message:

    Busybox v1.15.3(ubuntu 1:1.15.3-1ubuntu5) built-in shell(ash)
    Enter 'help' for list of built in commands

    (initramfs) mount:mounting/dev/loop0 on// filesystem.squashfs failed input/output error
    Can not mount /dev/loop0 (/cdrom/casper/filesystem/squashfs) on //filesystem.squashfs

    if I put the same disc into my HP laptop it boots up ubuntu fine. (however it won't allow me to get online, but that is a different issue).

    any help?

    My first guess is that the CD/DVD player is dirty or defective.
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    yeah...

    that was actually something i had thought of but didnt think about it again until now..i'll try to clean it and if that doesn't work i guess it will need to be replaced.
