How do I boot in GUI mode on Ubuntu 8.04 from a live CD?

I am trying to install ubuntu linux and whenever I boot, I can only see the terminal.
I have tried the startx command, but I get “Error 27: Unknown Command”.
I have tried all the commands that were there, but I can’t get any of them to work. And with the install and setup command, I get Error 1 (I forgot what it is though, I can remember numbers easily, just not words)

  1. Sounds like your download was corrupt. Re-download and burn again. If you experience the same problem, it may possibly be a driver support issue.

  2. try “Start X” or “Start x” not the capitalisation
