  1. How to Build a bootable Ubuntu CD

    I got a install CD file ubuntu-5.04-install-i386 from Ubuntu site and
    wrote the file to a CD-R diskette.

    After that I place this CD into my labtop DVD-ROM drive. Reboot my labtop
    from this drive. It checks the diskette for a few seconds and then ignores
    it start my XP system.

    Is my CD build incorrect? Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    There are a few major possibilities:

    1. The BIOS isn't set up to boot from the cd. You can check this by
    entering the BIOS set up screen and making sure that it's set to
    boot from the cd drive before the hard drive.
    2. The CD wasn't burnt correctly (see
    which was
    mentioned previously).
    3. The CD-R is a bad disc. The only way to fix this is to throuw
    out the disc and try again with a new disc.

    Also, remember that you can order the pressed cds from for free.
