It sounds like you are having trouble burning the .iso and are possibly 
burning the .iso file to the disk as a data file rather than an image. 
Before you get too frustrated and give up I wanted to make sure you were 
aware of the Ubuntu "Ship-It" program which will allow you to order a free 
pre-made Ubuntu CD. You can find info here:


Hope this helps, and good luck!


I have tried booting up with the Ubuntu disk from the Ubuntu book in the CD.
This should be a good CD disk.  Windows computer will not boot from CD disk.
Rember Ubuntu is already installed in the computer in its own seperate HD.
My question remains.  How does one UN INSTALL Ubuntu from within Ubuntu?  I
believe the Ubuntu presently installed on my computer (in its own seperatr
HD) is corrupt. I need to un install Ubuntu.  How do I do it?
