I just couldn't find an option inside GRUB for loading from the Live CD,
never having done it before, but it's probably quite obvious. Anyway, the
Lenovo machines have an option built in for entering their BIOS at start-up,
and it is quite easy to do from there, by just telling it to load from
"other DD" instead of HD", which is done by using the down button and moving
to the second option on the BIOS menu, so it could hardly be simpler. I am
now back on my Lenovo, having installed 10.04 on it.
