In my case, I'm running VirtualBox 1.5.6 on Ubuntu 8.04 LTS (hardy)
and the Lucid CD has the date 3-Mar-2010.  When I start the VM  I get
the boot splash screen.  But when I select "Try Ubuntu without
installing" all I get is a black screen with the cursor blinking the
upper left corner.

Does Ubuntu have something like the Debug and/or Failsafe option in Knoppix?
