Ok so this past week I have been trying out Ubuntu. I am most certainly am a noob at this. Anyways my first instinct was to install Ubuntu 8.04 x64, I had several issues during the install, the most prevalent being random lock-ups at random steps during the install. I tried it both with the Live cd and the Alt cd. Finally i gave up and installed the x86 version and all has been well. I currently have an AMD Phenom 9600 BE in case anyone wants to know. And in case it matters i have run 64 bit versions of windows in the past. Is there something that I am not doing correctly? Thanks in advance.

The 64-bit versions can be tricky. Without a lot more information, it is impossible for us to diagnose what went wrong with your install.

I know this sounds odd, but the only way I was able to install the x64 version was through a live pendrive install.

Tried CDs burned from 4 diffrent PCs and a Mac. Maybe the OP should try that.
