    you should try is burning the iso again but on a lower speed. sometimes bootable cds have trouble starting when burned at a higher speed

    i think there is an option to boot into a safe mode or failsafe on the cd. boot into that and see if you still have this problem

    Sorry, only one PC. Although I did try Suse inux and it just reboots after I try to install it, same with the 6.06 version of Ubuntu. I am guessing it's a hardware problem. Thanks for all the help. :)
