Ubuntu 6.06 Won't Install: CD-ROM Couldn't Be Mounted?
The next logical step was to try using a different CD-ROM drive, so I pulled out an old drive I had laying around and had the exact same problem. At this point it was obviously an issue with my motherboard/IDE setup, so I went into the BIOS to see if I could find any settings relating to that. Unfortunately I could not. This is pretty much where I said forget it, and downloaded Debian and installed it without an issue. I guess I could of downloaded Ubuntu onto my other computer and installed through it through the network, but at that point Debian sounded much better than an OS that couldn't even use my DVD-RW/CD-R drive to install itself. I guess I'm done recommended Ubuntu.
