First of all congrats to the xubuntu team for a very nice product. I 
volunteer with a small charity that refurbishes older computer to donate 
to the disadvantaged. We may be installing Linux in the future and 
xubuntu is very appealing for this.

I have installed xubuntu on two different machines, with considerably 
different hardwre. On both the boot splash stops at "Checking Battery 
State". The only way I can boot is to boot failsafe to root and startx 
as root. I have tried modifying grub by adding noapic and nolapic but 
that did not help. Any ideas appreciated.
