I did try to run a search of the forum but it spat out nothing useful. forgive me if this has already been addressed. but I do need some help here.
I'm a total newbie to linux and was trying to install ubuntu 6.1. I burned an ISO disc and it seemed to start booting and installing but then hung itself up only showing the brown ubuntu screen (no progress). after retrying a couple of times, I tried to run ubuntu 5.1 from a live CD. it seemed to be mounting things but in the end it gave me a "fatal server error: No screen found". also, the file /dev/apm_bios was missing. and in the end it said it couldn't enable the X server, that it was now disabled until the scree n is configured correctly. only i don't really know what it wants me to do?... :rolleyes:
it did ask once during the installation what kind of resolution it should use and i didn't change anything there, but I don't really know what else I could do?...
