Thanks for everyones help.  I have had it running over the weekend and
it's still on now, so problem solved.

Just adding an option of acpi=off to the Grub boot loader solved the
issue. (Thanks Alan)

The next project is to run a scaled down Ubuntu install as a
pre-installation environment on our 700 PCs, so to provide tools to
rebuild Windows, auto-backup tools, etc for our User Support people.

Thanks again,
