    I installled Ubuntu recently but found that my mouse wasn't working in it.So I decided to remove it and formatted the partition containing it via Win XP.I also removed the swap partition created by it.

    The problem is that when ever I start my PC it displays an error " Grub Installer Error 22".
    and the computer stops there.My PC works fine when I booted it with DSL (Damn Small Linux) provided in the April 2006 CD.Help me out.

    Also I have noticed that my ball mouse doesnt work in Linspire Live or any other Live CD's.What could be the problem?

    i too faced this problem recently. i continously pressed Esc and then booted into XP. then, i used paragorn partition manager to disable the grub loader. then using the ubuntu cd, reformat the drive to FAT. that might help.
