trouble with usb live setup
okay. after several months of toying with the usb live programs and coming up with errors, I tried a different thumb drive with similar results. I purchased another one (sandisk) and it worked. i finally got ubuntu onto my acer. why do some flash drives not work? thanks for all the help, and I'll be around asking more questions. thank you :)
