comment Unable to install software on Ubuntu 8.04
I tried the 10.04 ISO and installation failed, same with 9.04 and debian 5.0. Backup is not important - this is a fresh install to test the feasibility of developing on Linux. Previously my company used DOS and clearly I am keen to avoid having to learn obsolete tech. Will I then have to reapply the vendor kernel updates again? Sorry if I am asking facile questions here.

@jokerdino The installation is made onto a compact flash card that is acting as a hard drive on the board. Thus far using ubuntu installation discs 8.04 is the only version that installs successfully. Also according to the vendor the board only supports up to 10.04 version of ubuntu.
