Dled Ubuntu (DUH!)
Booted from the CD I burned
Then thats where it went wrong.
I can't run Ubuntu, it comes up with a mouse pointer (you can move it) & a coloured background. Then a white borderless box appears then it freezes.
I've tried 6.06 and 6.10
EDIT: The PC I'm trying to install it on is a Compaq Aramda 700
EDIT: I'm going to try xubuntu to see if that works
