I am trying to install Ubuntu 12.04 on this machine. It has 256MB RAM. I have created a bootable CD but when booting, it stalls on the Ubuntu screen with 5 red spots. Is this the wrong version for this machine? Any help would be appreciated.

Resolve that problem by hitting F6 and typing in b43.blacklist=yes before selecting to install.
