Don, Fraser...and all the other gentlemen i didn't mention, just want to thank you all for the help.... I can say i'm fast learning my new found OS, However, i do still have some more questions for u all. I got this IBM think pad laptop the x86 family 6 model 8 step ffrom a friend and i want to install the kubuntu on it and I'm running into this probs. I tried to run the live Cd on, it runs displays the kubuntu inital screen with the progression bar and i'd chose the first option and then it will continue with errors such as Buffer I/O error on device sro, logical block 48067,48079....the labtop came with win 2000 on it and i'm trying to get ride of the win2000 off it.. but can't seem to be able to format the disk any suggestions... thanks in advance guys.
