I got a dell Dimension 2350 given to me and my first thought was to make a dedicated linux box. Its got a 30gb maxtor drive, 768mb ram, and a 1.8ghz intel processor. I got my ubuntu 7.04 live cd and installed it without a problem, but when it was done it asks if you want to keep using the love cd or reboot. I chose reboot and the screen went black, no progress meter or anything. I waited and eventually the cd tray opened. I took the cd out and hit enter (still blank screen), my computer beeped and rebooted. Now when i boot into ubuntu i get a completely black screen. If i wait about 2 minutes and hit a button, the logon screen pops up. I already tried uninstalling/reinstalling even with 6.10, but that didnt help. Once im logged in it works fine, but it bothers me not having a progress bar or anything while booting up, it makes me think something is way off.
