I have an old Gateway 2000 that I've been messing around with recently. I installed DSL on it just to screw around, but eventually I decided to switch to Kubuntu. I downloaded and ran the install only disk, but now whenever I boot it, I get this error message: "Grub Loading... Error 18"

could be caused by a bad install or a bad burn.
i would try reinstalling and if that dont work try to reburn the cd. if you reburn, burn at the slowest speed.

There is a discussion and fixes offered in the forum link below. Looks like a
bios fix should work.
