I rebooted it,
with the same CD in there,
and it came up with the desktop. OK

Maybe I hit some other key the first time?

I’ve put in the CD, booted,
it says:
[Other...]
[Enter your username]
[Enter your password]

I put in a new username and password
but it said
[Incorrect password, please try again]

If I was an ex-XP user I would give up and buy windows7.

Hurray!!  glad your issue was resolved quickly!
The installation of 14.04 for me was very easy and quick (this was many moons ago)
So hopefully yours is too.  It might be worth checking the MD5Sum, etc.. just in case :)

  Hi,
  It will most definitely be the same version as long as you continue updating it.
  You may have such a slow connection that it hangs up.  It may be a problem with that image as well...
  You could always try the current image... but it may be good to try to torrent the image instead, as that can make it go quicker.
  If you are using Firefox, you can pause the current download and start a new download to see if the current image will work.
  It may simply be the traffic clogging up your download.
  (p.s. post to the whole list so everyone can see your replies, in case they have specific experience with it)

    Its been stuck on 57% for 16 minutes,
    the internet is very slow here,
    specially on a saturday night when the neighbours are using it too.

    Same problem happened yesterday.

    I’m assuming if I do download it from
    http://cdimages.ubuntu.com/lubuntu/daily-live/current/
    which someone just suggested
    and install it on the computers
    updating it will make it as if I’d waited till the 17th for the release.

    Hi!
    Also, George, what is your issue?  Is the download failing?  does it complete the download and not work?  Are you unable to download it altogether?
    Thanks!

      The download server is a little slow sometimes that is why we have torrent downloads for releases. There is zsync and rsync if you do not want to download a new image each day but don't want to have to wait. You will need to download the first iso though or I remember someone saying you could use an earlier release iso and then sync to the new one with renaming it but don't remember quite what you must rename it.

        to install on a couple of machines.

        I've been trying several days,
        got a very slow connection,
        am i doing something wrong?
