I am trying to install 12.04 lts server on a 3000+ amg athlon 64 cpu yes its a single core, with 1 gb ram, ssd 96gb hard drive is 1st drive and i have a 640gb hard drive as secondary.

did you MD5 test the ISO you downloaded?
if you burned a CD, did you burn as slowly as possible?

Single core is fine if it suits the need of the server. No point having a quad core CPU in a system running a Samba service for 2 client PCs.
