I've used Ubuntu in past, but it was set up through work, and would only boot on my Ram drive so nothing would save.
So I am familiar with booting up using F12 at start and choosing either boot by DVD (cd-rom) or by USB (and used the same usb stick i had from company I no longer work with but reformated it so I could put the ISO onto it. either way neither effort work. Always reverts back to windows start up as if I had no boot disk in at all. Windows XP is getting really buggy and I refuse to pay them for newer system that wont run on my older computer. I am on very limited budget (disability) but hoping to keep my computer running for day to day use.
Thanks in advance for any help you guys can provide.
