If you've managed to boot Ubuntu from the CD, it's probably not DOS:

What message (exactly) does it say (before you type anything).

If you've downloaded and burnt the Desktop CD you should have a graphical
desktop with menus at the top (Applications Places System).

Why do one side of a triangle when you can do all three.  Somewhere, GB.
