Exactly...I have never had that happen before.
I even repartioned the hard drive and refomatted it using Gparted and then inserted the Disk and same thing happened.
I have used heaps of other Live CDs and done subsequent installs but this is the first time that I have experienced this problem.
Tried running startx and got the following:
Fatal server Error: Server is already active for display 0
If this server is no longer running, remove /tmp/.XO-lock and start again.
Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 keygiving up.
xinit:Interrupted System call (errno4): unable to connect to x server.
Xinit: No such process(errno3): Server error
This is getting way outside of my league
