I have had problems in the past with booting newer versions of the
ubuntu live cd on a few older machines. for instance i was trying to
install ubuntu gutsy on an old 500 MHZ* machine with an asus board in
it and it just wouldn't boot at all, then i tried it with dapper and it
booted and installed fine. I don't know if the way the live cds work
has changed in recent versions and older machines machines cant boot
them or what but like i say i've had similar issues before and found
the easiest way around this was to install an older version of ubuntu
and once the OS is installed then just do a dist-upgrade but i'm sure
someone here will have a better suggestion than that.

The Xubuntu live CD won't boot. It displays the boot screen. After the*
I select an option it reboots. Same with the Alternate CD.
I trying to reinstall the OS from scratch.
