Problem installing Ubuntu Studio

I have been, in the interest of doing audio/graphic works, for the past 
few years, running Debian Squeeze. Having some various problems there 
presently, so I am seriously considering trying U.Studio (again). Made 
the Live DVD... got it to start, tested for defects, was ok, tried to 
try Ubuntu Studio with out installing...  does the dot changing color 
routine for a bit... screen goes to dark, then brightens, then dark, 
over & over (& when it does brighten, there is an arrow cursor, which I 
can move around with my mouse). Now I have only let it do this perhaps 8 
or 10 minutes (?), but since there are no indications of any real 
activity (my led for hard drive, nor DVD player, does not blink), seems 
like something may not be going correctly... (of course, since I'm not 
familiar, really w/ this system, as of recent... could be I'm just 
impatient, or too dang insecure?).

Any help, or advice would be welcome.

Thanks in advance.


P.s., I'm running a Mobil AMD Athlon XP-M processor 3000+ with 1.5 GiB
