i downloaded ubuntu 8.10 and followed the imaging burn instructions.
when i try to install onto hard drive from clean boot unbuntu boots but
when prompted to install or any of the options i get "problem with disk"
window and my only option is to click reboot button provided. yet if i
put disk in working computer to explore the ubuntu os everything is
there or looks to be. any suggestions on how to install this os to make
it the os on the hard drive.

Hi: Try the test the Install Disk Option. It scans all the Code on your
CD/DVD against Check-sums, and it there is an error, it will point it
out. You might need to download it again, if there are errors.
