Have you tried the 32bit version? Often on a desktop machine (Meaning
a workstation user machine) running 64 bit linux is more of a hassle
due to driver problems. It might be worth a shot downloading and
installing the 32 bit version. You'll definitely run into less
problems later on with flash and other programs.

You can also remove the splash on you real install by editing the file
/boot/grub/menu.lst and taking the "splash" keywords out on the kernel
command lines. I'm way to sick to talk that through line by line at
the moment (It wouldn't be coherent) so I'll let someone else get the
line by line for that!
