I thought that I would give Kubuntu another chance (this time unplugging my XP drive first!) and googled up osme ideas for possible errors on my end. One reference claimed that Windows XP could not burn bootable CDs. I had used Nero to burn the iso, and I thought I was OK, but they claimed that it was better to use a program such as ISO recorder. I downloaded and installed ISO recorder, and then attempted to burn the Kubuntu live iso to a new disk. ISO recorder burned the disc instantaneously, so I knew something was wrong. Sure enough, there was nothing on the disc when I attempted a boot. The saga continues…
