How much RAM do you have?  Acer shipped some of these units with a really stingy 
amount of RAM, like 256Mb or even 128Mb.   If this is the case I can offer some 
suggestions about how to get the machine working with a 'buntu distro.

I am attempting to install xubuntu 10.04 on Acer Veriton 2800
the live CD (10.04) stalls/crash just before the gui loads, but the mouse cursor 
is displayed

i've just left the computer on, the monitor went into power saving mode
when I move the mouse the xubuntu background image is displayed, but with no 
menu bar
