Hi! I built a a computer a while ago and have been trying various distros of linux on it just for fun. I was hoping to try out Ubuntu but whenever I've tried to install it I get the following error: (initiates) 69.304816] end_request: I/O error, dev sr0, sector 1431176 [69.304858] Buffer I/O error on device sr0, logical block 178897 I've tried installing with both Kubuntu and Ubuntu 8.10. I've also burned the discs at very slow speeds to ensure no data gets screwed up. I don't think my HD is the issue since other versions of linux have been installed fairly easily. I've seen other people on forums with the same issues but no solutions I've seen have worked for me. I've heard many good things about Ubuntu so I'm hoping I can get this to work. I appreciate any info/ advice you offer. Thanks!!
