    My Ubuntu Installation Stops at:

    "Adding Live CD User ..."

    My System Config Are :

    Sony DRU 820A
    Samsung SW 252B CD-RW Drive
    P4 2.8Ghz Northwood
    Intel 845G
    512 MB DDR 333

    The Installation cd works fine on my friend's cd drive , and also on my Samsung drive , but it hangs on my DVD Drive .

    Looks like there is no problem with the Ubuntu CD. The problem lies in your DVD
    drive. How old is your DVD drive? Have your DVD-ROM lens cleaned by a technician.
    If it's under warranty, take it to the Sony service centre.

    Try installing Ubuntu from another CD in the pack. Maybe it will work.
    There maybe problem with the CD also.

    I tried installin DApper too.
    the installation takes ages to start.
    I tok about 3-4 minutes for the first screen to pop up.
    however when i tried the same disc on another system wid lower configuration it worked fine.
    THE SAME CD works fine in Windows.

    the same thing is happening with me

    I had a lite-On DVD writer previously, & after my recent HD crash, i baught a new Sony DW-Q120A DVD Writer, & the Kubuntu CD i got from shipit, no longer works, but it did worked in the previous DVD writer

    When i put the CD, in Windows XP, nothing happens, & it doesn't even loads up, when i try to boot from it same thing goes, & nothing happens, can't even use it as live CD, while kororaa which i tried previously works fine
