No, I can not even get into the desktop to install 8.04.  I can get to 
the first menu where it ask you if you want to intal it or boot into the 
live desktop.  I uses the option to check the CD which said it was fine, 
even though it is a USB drive.  When I press either the boot into 
desktop or install at first everything looks fine and I see boot screen 
with the graphic of Ubuntu and the bar, but then Busybox pops up.

Sorry, I meant 8.04, not 8.06 :).  This is why this is so imprtant to 
me.  I gave that laptop to my wife so she would have her own and now I 
have screwed it up.  I fell so responsible :(.

Your friend,

Sent to you from a Linux computer using Ubuntu Version 8.10
