Burning & testing of Ubuntu 11.04 32bit live cd

This is a report about burning and testing a Ubuntu ver. 11.04 32 bit live cd on my desktop pc. The specs for my pc are:

PSU: Antec NeoPower HE High Efficiency 430W

1. First I went to http://www.ubuntu.com/start-download?distro=desktop&bits=32&release=latest  and downloaded the latest release package of Ubuntu.

2. Next I downloaded InfraRecorder software for burning the iso file. Something went wrong during the burning of the first cd and it got corrupted. Trying to explore the cd always ended up in explorer crashing so I tested the cd on another pc and the exact same thing happened there aswell. After this I decided to discard the cd and make another one. This time everything went smoothly.

3. After I made sure the cd was working. I also checked that it contained everything it was supposed to and then restarted my computer.

4. Then I booted up from the Ubuntu cd and went on to test it instead of installing. After that I checked that everything was working properly. I launched FireFox and surfed to a couple of sites. Once I was convinced all the critical parts needed to operate my pc were functioning properly I shut down my pc and took the cd out.
