That is very strange, were you connected to the internet when you ran the update ?

Sorry all along i thought you were connected, the update will only work with a net connection. So in this case just add only this to your /etc/apt/sources.list
Code:
deb cdrom:[Kubuntu 7.10 _Gutsy Gibbon_ - Release i386 (20071016.1)]/ gutsy main restricted
then put the cdrom into the drive and the install using the command i gave you in older posts.

Default is it possible to download required files to XP

Is it not possible to download (using XP )the necessary files to a folder accessible to Ubuntu. Then copy folder to /home in Ubuntu and then run apt-get update from this folder?
If this can work then I could possibly be al to get Ubuntu on line to download the latest updates.

Many thanks for your help this far
John
