Ubuntu Linux Install?

I just downloaded Ubuntu Linux and burned it onto a CD and when i put it in my CD drive on another computer with no partitions on it, it just boots up from the CD and when i try to open the Install icon on the desktop it doesn’t do anything. Total newbie when it comes to linux and i have don’t really know how to make a partition.

Please help!
well nothing came up when i put the disk in just the screen that says:
start or install linux
start in graphics safe mode ect.
when i click Start or install, it just boots it from the CD. also the computer that i am trying to install it from is too out of range of the wireless to get internet.

Help with spyware/virus issue.

When I log into WinXP I get a blue screen with a message that says Warning! Spyware detected on this computer! Install antivirus or antispyware program. It doesn’t let me get to the desktop. It doesn’t let me into Safe Mode. I can boot from a live linux cd and access the internet, but can’t find any virus scan that will work this way. Any ideas? And I also tried a repair install of XP, that didn’t work either.

Linux Install Issues?

I finally desided to make the jump, after the new Ubuntu came out. So i burnt the live CD tried it out and it worked. Then I put it into the computer I wished to install it on to. A Toshiba Satellite (about 2 years old) and I hit install all went great until the part with the partitioning… then it told me it couldn’t partition or something… It then pushed me to the next screen in the install.I tried a few things but didn’t want to screw around to much because I didn’t want to delete my windows partition with all my data on it (i’m planning on dual booting and then after a while moving only to linux)

any help would be useful… this was the only place I had an account to if there is a better website to post this on by all means link away.
