I actually figured it out. I was trying to install to the same HDD that the install files were on, so yea....Brain fart, so I have 11.04 installed and working but I still have an issue when I boot it up. Before it completely boots up, I get two error messages:
"The disk drive for /boot is not ready yet or not present. Continue to wait, or Press S to skip mounting or M for manual recovery"
I'm a newbie when it comes to Linux, but I have classes that use it coming up (ITT-Tech) so I figured I would get a head start with it.
I have a couple other questions for anyone that is familiar with Ubuntu (preferably 11.04).
Thanks for all the help guys and gals
