I have attempted to load Ubuntu 9.04 on a Celeron PC without success. The
PC has a DVD writer, 32Mb RAM, plenty Gigs hard drive.

I tried booting "Mint" on the same system with the same results.

The following happened:

The DVD booted from Windows XP "restart"

Choose Language

The Ubuntu logo appeared and both the DVD drive operated.

Eventually the Ubuntu screen background appeared.
The curser arrow appeared, but was unmovable.
After a few minutes the arrow became movable.
After this, nothing happened; The dvd drive and the hard drive were
static. The Ubuntu screen background remained.

Please help!
