I ran across an older toshiba laptop with a pentium 4 2.66 ghz cpu and 464 mg of ram.
I thought i would try out Ubuntu 12.04 on it instead of running live on another computer to test it. So anyway I love the GUI but this computer just isn't fast enough to handle it for my taste at least. So I thought i would try the newer Lubuntu distro since it's a little lighter weight and I can't get the computer to boot from the install disk I burned.
I followed all the instructions, I burned the image to the disk correctly even tried burning another copy to see if it was that. But it just goes straight to the menu where you select what version of Ubuntu you want to boot. I can get to a grub prompt from there but I don't know the command if there is one I can use to tell it to boot from disk?
I tried going into BIOS to make sure disk drive it still first priority and the computer just freezes and sits there forever doing nothing. I also thought that it might have been a bad download so I tried a version of fedora on it that I know works and it still won't boot from CD. What should I do now?
