Tried that and got the same response so I downloaded the iso of Kubuntu put it on a disc and it ran first time, im now trying to figure out how to change the network settings so I can get on-line, im using it through the trial on the CD but can not access the internet yet. I quit like it but Im going to have to do some reading up, the main thing now is to figure out how to change the network settings, I can get to them, then select admin mode to change things but t is very different to windows so I haven't got a clue any ideas?

I suppose you`re right, I may have remembered that in an older version of Ubuntu you had to do the installing in this precise order (at least that`s what the tutorial I used then told me)

By the way, you have the same graphics card as me ^_^'

First, tell us what kind of connection you have. Kubuntu is not recommended as GUI I would suggest XFCE (you can switch to it after you install) it`s a little bit harder to get used to it, but it`s faster.
