WOOOOHOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ok.....so the problem was really really simple....but first i wanna thank you guys for all the help. You guys are awesome.

Now, lol....i actually kinda feel ashamed to say this....but the only reason that it wasn't booting was because i had the resolution set wrong. In the little boot screen, it shows f4 as vga. well i changed that to 1280x1024...and it booted right in to Ubuntu. I guess that it was probably loading all along, just that i couldn't see it for some reason.

again, thanks for all the help. and hell, i updated my bios in the process...so its not like it was all bad.

oh oh, 1 last thing. Ive got ubuntuforums.org saved to my favorites. Can ya'll recommend some more sited for ubuntu. i want to find some good tutorials and such.

Thanks,
HaV

ok....another question.

Now that ive got it installed, i still cant see it. Like....it starts to load, the kernals load...and then it goes black like it did at the start of all this. As stated above, i changed the resolution on the live disk from vga to 1280x1024, so that i could see something. Well, here...i dont have that, how would i go about changing it so i can see something.

You should be able to hit 'esc' and edit the grub configuration setting a line like 'vga=xxx' where XXX is the mode you need.
