Dear Ubuntu Developers!
My friend is a blind person, but he would like using Ubuntu. You have'nt 
got braille display.
I is a blind person, and can not help he's problem, because impossible 
help he's problem with remote.
He's computer configuration is:
CPU type: Intel Celeron 4A, 2400 MHz (6 x 400)
Motherboard: Asus P4V800-X  (5 PCI, 1 AGP, 3 DIMM, Audio, LAN)
Motherboard chipset: VIA VT8763 Apollo PT800
System memory: 1024 MB (DDR SDRAM)
BIOS type: Asus AMI (11/12/03)
Communication ports: Com1, NetMos PCI ECP Parallel Port (LPT3)
Graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce2 MX/MX 400 (Microsoft Corporation)  (64 MB)
Soundcard: C-Media CMI8738/C3DX Audio Device
Disk drives:
Floppy drive with 1.44Mb
Hard disk: Maxtor 6E040L0  (40 GB, 7200 RPM, Ultra-ATA/133)
Hard disk (secondary):  Maxtor 6E040L0  (40 GB, 7200 RPM, Ultra-ATA/133)
Raid controller: VIA Serial ATA RAID Controller (no devices connected 
this controller)
When he tryed booting Hardy or Intrepid live cd, the following situation 
is present he's computer configuration:
Nine numbers changed lot of time, after the nine number the following 
error messages is displayed:
Buffer I/O error on device sr0, logical block 0
Buffer I/O error on device sr0, logical block 1
Buffer I/O error on device sr0, logical block 2
Buffer I/O error on device sr0, logical block 3
And the finish, before the Busybox shell, the following error message is 
End_request: I/O error, defsr0, sector 0
This simptoms repeated some minutes, and the finish:
BusyBox v1.10.2 (Ubuntu 1:1.10.2-1 ubuntu6) built-in shell (ash) Enter 
'help' for a list of built-in commands. (initramfs)
This simptoms produce Hardy and Intrepid live cd's same. This is a 
critical bug my openion, please solve it is possible, or please send any 
ideas how can
we solve this problem. Ubuntu is a very good accessible Linux 
distribution, but if the user have'nt got sighted assistand and have'nt 
got a braille display, the user can not solve this problem, because not 
see logs etc.
Please answer this bugreport if it is possible.
