I managed to download Ubuntu 11.10, burn an iso file on a cd and install it on a dell precision 380 along with windows xp. the problem is that ubuntu option does not appear when the computer is started. It seems my bootloader is not working properly. Any solutions?

Shahid, when you select the Boot from CD at you Setup and you restart you computer, the first screen that will appear for you is with the "ISOLINUX..." text.

I think that you could verify this CD media in another machine and verify if your Setup is properly configured to boot up your CD driver.
