    Kubuntu Install Help


    Many people probably ask this every day but...
    Ive downloaded the kubuntu-6.10-desktop-i386.iso, but I can't boot it on my computer -.- I use a Gateway, and ive tried many things. Ive tried going into the file with 7-zip and extracted all of the files and burned them onto a disc, Ive tried just burning kubuntu-6.10-desktop-i386.iso on a disc, edited my BIOS menue, but still, my computer never says "press any key to BOOT from disk..." like in M$ Winblows... can anyone help me?

    I have a Gateway as well. All you have to do is hit the correct F-key(can't remember which one)when booting up and change your boot order to CD/DVD-Rom to boot first.

    Stick the Ubunutu disk in and on boot-up, it should detect that an OS is on the disc and start the process.

    Make sure you are burning the image correctly and not making a data cd. Also burn at a slow speed (4x).

    Check this thread as well: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/iso

    Good luck.

    do a google search for a script called "envy". Its terminal based but makes installation of nvidia drivers REALLY easy.

    Kill X with ctrl+alt+F1 and then type "envy".
