    Are you talking about Linux Live CDs, or booting the Mac OS DVD? I've never had issues doing either. Also, what type of machine are you on / model?

    ok. I tried that it just did the same. Should the CD say "Windows"? (I have the linux cd in) Does it matter that its not just a Ubuntu CD its a "Linux for dummes" CD.
