comment Blank screen after Switch User or Resume
lshw & lspci links added; have I had the system checked? well I've run diagnostics for memory and hard drive (ubuntu boot cd, sysrescue cd). Other than that I've no idea how to get it checked. All of the local computer repair outfits I've dealt with think the way to solve problems is to nuke & pave (or buy a new system).

...and after checking md5sum discovered the iso was bad. Thanks for the good answer.

comment Unable to mount /dev/loop0 during install
on the cd I created today there is no "Check CD for defects", there is "Check disc for defects" though -- leaving me with the question does that refer to cd or hard drive? In any case when I pick it I get the same failure message as in the question.

comment Group share permisssions to windows clients?
I chose the 2nd option.force group works for maintaining the group, thanks for that. security mask isn't working though, g+w is still being stripped when a file is saved. Or was I supposed to do both 1 and 2? (first sentence says "either")
