i am tring to load ubuntu onto an old computer i have lying around. i put the disk in and got it to go to a menu with the options start/install, check cd, etc. i do install, it starts to install but when it gets to configureing power options it freezes for a minute and goes to a black screen that says "Uncompressing Linux... Ok, booting the kernel." from here, nothing happens. any suggestions?

thanks,

nick
