After tinkering with the boot parameters (seems i only need "live noapic nolapic" to get to the error), it runs fairly well. It goes through the processes, with a black screen and an orange "Ubuntu" logo in the middle. Below it, processes are run and checked. It gets to a black screen with white type, and pauses at "Checking Battery Charge" or something similar.
After that, a blue screen pops up (BSOD in linux?!) and says "There is a problem with your X server (graphical interface), and it may not be setup correctly." It then gives me the option to view detailed information (sorta like system specs) about the error. Then it says that "X server will be disabled" or something, and the paragraph includes "GTD". I forgot to write down the message, but i can retrieve it if it's needed.
So what am i doing wrong? Is there a boot parameter i need to input? What's this X server, and how do i edit how it's setup?
If it matters, i'm running an eMachines with AMD 64 3000+, 1gb ram, 150gb hd, 128mb ATI xpress 200, with XP.
