Sorry about that. I have an old Toshiba Satellite 1800 laptop with 20GB HDD and 500mb memory. There is nothingI want from the hard drive and am trying to boot ubuntu 12.04 from the install CD and have got this far............

BusyBox vl.18.5 (ubuntu 1:1,18.5-ubuntu4) built in shell (ash) Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.

(initrafs) help Built-in commands:

.: [ alias break cd chdir command continue echo eval exec exit export false getopts hash help let local printf pwd read readonly return set shift test times trap true type ulimit unmask unalias upset wait [ [[ ash awk basename blockdev cat chmod chroot chvt clear cmp cp cut deallocvt df dnsdomainname du dumpkmap echo egrep env expr false fbset fdflush fgrep find grep gunzip gzip hostname ifconfig lp kill in loadfont loadkmap ls mkdir mkfifo mknod mkswap mktemp modinfo more mount mv openvt pidof printf ps pwd readlink reset rm rmdir sed seq setkeycodes sh sleep sort stat static-sh stty switch_root sync tail tee test touch tr true tty umount uname uniq wc wget which yes zcat

I have come to a grinding halt, can you please help.
