I downloaded ubuntu-12.04-desktop-i386.iso and burned it onto a CD. That went fine. I started my notebook from the CD and that went fine too.
After a while I get a screen with the Launcher at the left side of the screen. The second icon from the top is "Install Ubuntu 12.04 LTS". I double-click it, but nothing happens. At the right side, there's a separate "Install Ubuntu 12.04 LTS" icon. I double-click it, but again nothing happens.
Should I be doing something else to install Ubuntu on the harddrive? Btw, the notebook is an Asus EEE 901 with a solid state harddrive.
