	I think you mean it is this:

         I read the full spec's of the HP Compaq NX9005 
computer on Google. It has a AMD Athlon XP-M 2400+ running at 
1.8GHz. It has 256 MB of RAM with a spare memory slot. It has 
a cd-rom read-write and a 40GB hard drive. Display maximum is 
1024x768 pixels.

         This does not sound like the computer he told us 
about as being his "HP nx9005" but for sure the Google data 
from is what it was like new. It is easy 
to increase the RAM but he said he has replaced the cpu with 
one from Intel. This might just be an error on his part.

         Since it has a cd-rom reader he should be able to 
download a liveCD of the Ubuntu version he desires and then 
report if the liveCD looks good on his monitor. Then carry on 
with an install.

	If you can do this and write back what happened, we can help 
you. Been there and done that.
