comment Software Center will not open
Hm. That's not awfully helpful. Could you try running gdb software-center, running it (run), then capturing a backtrace (bt) when it crashes?

comment Is it possible to install Ubuntu without a CD or USB drive?
1 GB is not actually correct. The Ubuntu community works hard to keep the size of the ISO under one standard CD, 700 MB. Some overhead will likely be present though, so 720 MB is more realistic. However, nowhere near 1 GB is required (unless you want persistence).

comment Why is there a new Group for me as a User?
@Roland: Technically the name "root" carries no powers with it. It's only the UID 0 that is the super user. By default, this is mapped to the username "root".
