Hello everybody!
I've been dying to try the newest version of Ubuntu! I got on the website to download it. I select "Ubuntu 10.10" then "64-bit." I sit for an hour downloading and the download usually stops half-way. I go to burn it on a CD and it always fails!!! I tried 3 burners. The one that comes with Windows 7, Nero, and PowerDVD burner 8. They all say something along the lines of "Selected file is not Valid" or stuff like that.
I also tried the Windows installer. Everything works right, but at the last 98% it says that there was an error.

Can someone please help me! I want to join the awesomeness of Ubuntu!

Thanks!

You should redownload the ISO file. It's recommended that you use the official torrent download here since it's much faster, and you can share your bandwidth with other users and reduce the load on the Ubuntu servers.

Also, 11.04 is coming out soon, if you are not afraid to wait.

I was able to download it. I decided to try downloading it via FireFox instead of Google Chrome and it worked. I'm lovig it. Thanks!
