I want to install ubuntu 9.10. I burned it to a dvd. i put the dvd in and selected it to reboot from dvd. I go through the process the time and language selection. Until, I get to the fourth step which is the partition step. Nothing comes up. I run windows vista 32 bit. any help/info would be deeply appreciated.

Hi there, I've assigned your question to the Ubuntu desktop team. They should be able to provide some advice. You may like to answer the following: did you select "manually partition disk" "use available free space" or "do it automatically"? --- I'm moving this to Ubuntu, as I can't see a relation to SoaS right now. Please let me know or correct this, if needed.
