This laptop will load the liveCD, however slowly because of its low memory, but when I try to install, it will begin to load the install program, but will stop after a couple minutes loading. Is this because of insufficient memory, or is the laptop itself incompatible with Ubuntu 6.10?

i wasn't able to get the alternate install cd yet, but i will later today. However, yesterday I got some Kubuntu dapper cds I had ordered, and I was able to install it. The liveCD worked fine, and installed, but when I booted the computer it wouldn't start properly. It restarted itself about 6 times before it even got to GRUB, and when it got to GRUB, it just said it was loading GRUB, for about an hour. Basically, I was wondering if it's a problem with the install, or if its the motherboard, because it did similar things when it tried to boot windows.
