hi there,
   i'm a new user of linux and i thought of trying one of the linux-based OS's.so,i ordered free shipit ubuntu  CDs(ubuntu ver.6.06 LTS-dapper drake,desktop version) and i've just got them a week ago.but alas,i was forbidden the linux experience by an error message saying 
"no screen found".i don't know what to do.if you know a solution,please help.
   this is what happened in detail.i inserted the CD and the ubuntu installation menu appeared.as you know,there are two options:the "start or install ubuntu" and the "start ubuntu in graphics mode" options.when choosing the first option,it started loading files and then opened a black screen with two white cursors alittle apart from each other.i touched every key plus ctrl+alt+F1 but nothing happened.then i restarted the computer and tried the second option.the same loading as the first one and then a blue screen with a message appears saying that "the xserxer is not correctly configured" and asking me if i want to view the logfile.when i accept,another screen appears which says at the end  "no screen found".i think the problem is with the monitor since it is plug and play.if you have experienced the same difficulty and know a way out of it,write me at:
