Hi Mo

Silly question, you may have already been asked it, have you tried 
downloading and burning another 9.10 iso the one you have may be duff?

Also doe's 9.10 have a 'safe mode' install? from memory of my UNR, which 
I'm on now, and the 'Live install' at work I don't think it does? Maybe 
an ACPI=OFF blah blah blah.

I've not read all the responses to the thread so sorry if I'm talking 
cobblers. I think you need to worry about *getting Ubuntu on* before 
worrying about wifi ect. Maybe as has been suggested (I agree you 
shouldn't have to in this day and age) do a text only install getting 
the base system on then build it up from there.

I also agree with you its ridiculous if Mandriva loads and runs and 
Ubuntu refuses but TBF I've seen that myself over the years e.g. RH will 
SuSE wont blah blah blah.

I could of course say "Install Arch Linux, you know it make sense" but 
I've my Ubudubu fanboy hat on tonight. Finally if it was me I would try 
smearing the blood of a virgin goat on it, works for me :-)
