Thanks to you all, especially the ones who suggests solutions, I used the alternate version and now I have it on my laptop!

The Integrity checking of the cd was successful but when I want to install ubuntu there is a problem. The desktop with that bird image is visible but there is no other thing to begin installing, no installing button or something like that. I changed the speed of burning cd but in this case, the pages for installation are not compelete.For instance, I can not see the map and the thing s below it in the part of determining location and time zone!

Why don't you try downloading the alternate cd from ubuntu.com or even from your nearest download site.

Try selecting the simple install with simple panels. That should load fine.




I guess he/she meant that was unable to install from the live cd because couldn't find the install icon.*

the minimal requirements for a graphical ubuntu installation are 256MB
of RAM ... with a system as above you can either install the server
variant (no graphical desktop), take something more lightweight like
xubuntu or build something self tailored for the hardware based on a
ubuntu minimal commandline install ...

Interesting...

I have Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy (Gnome) running on a 350Mhz/128Mb test laptop.
I used the Alternate CD and it installed just fine (albeit very, very
slow due to the machine speed and limited memory). Note that I would not
recommend doing this, unless you like watching: grass grow, offshore
sailboat racing from the shoreline, and slow things in general :-)

In addition to xubuntu, there is a rather nice & very lightweight
desktop that I use called lxde:
