initial install problems stuck on start screen
Im using an old emachine computer with windows 98 originally on it. What I am trying to do is install Ubuntu on to this computer and wipe everything else out. I got the cds in the mail so no download problems here. I put in the 'install cd' and restarted the computer. Ubuntu boots up but gets stuck on the first initial prompt. "The default installation is suitable for most desktop or laptop systems. Press F1 for help and advanced install ation options. To install only the base system, type 'server' then ENTER. For the default installation, press enter. boot: _ " Thats all I get. I can't type anything, when I press enter nothing happens. When I type server nothing comes up and nothing happens. When I press F1 nothing happens. I've tried restarting and doing it all over again but the same thing happens. Is it possible that its not picking up my keyboard? or is the problem somewhere else? Your help is very much appreciated. Thank you!
