Buffer I/O errors installing Ubuntu 6.06
Desktop install using the ISO 386 CD went perfect, working great. I really like Ubuntu 6.06 so far.
Flushed with success, I decided to go do the same thing to my old Dell Latitude CPi laptop. Didn't go so good. Dell PII-366, 296M RAM. When uncompressing the kernel on install, I'm getting a long (and apparently never-ending) list of Buffer I/O errors on logical block xxxxx (varies). Lots of CD thrashing, more buffer I/O errors, yada yada. Finally gave up. Happened with both my existing Win XP FAT32 drive AND with a spare, brand new never before installed 10G IBM drive. Same deal.
Is the Dell hdd controller the problem? What now?
