Xubuntu 11.04 works, I think
the CD is reporting itself as xubuntu 10.04 (strange)

That's odd, I recently installed Xubuntu and it seemed to be reporting as 
11.04.  In what area did it say it was 10.04?

Glad it seems to be working for you however.

Actually, bad sectors may be indicating a problem with the hard drive.  It would 
really pay to look at the Smart status of the drive and keep close tabs on it.  
Also do regular backups of any important data.
