✔ Best Answer
Check the minimum system requirements for running Linux 12.04, then check if your old PC meets those requirements. If you don't know how to do that, try installing it on your newer computer.

Your post is poorly written. Are you sure you want Ubuntu rather than one of the more user-friendly distros that are based on Ubuntu, Mint or Zorin for example?

I assume you created the disc correctly, downloaded the 12.04 LTS 32-bit ISO from the Ubuntu site, then burned it to a DVD using ImgBurn or similar software? All you have to do is boot off the disc & allow Ubuntu to load (live session), then click the "install Ubuntu" icon on the desktop & follow the prompts.
