Where can i get floppy disk boot files for fl

Specs: Windows XP
Im trying to create a dual boot system using windows xp, and I'm trying to install fluxubuntu due to the size of my hard drive. The install cd I burned does not boot up when I turn my computer on. I positioned my cd rom drive at the top of the list in startup config in bios, but it still won't boot. It says boot files not found. I'm not exactly sure what boot files I'm looking for? Windows boot files, or missing boot files on the install cd.I tried three different cd's with the same result.I have a floppy drive to possibly do a boot file on a floppy, but what boot file. Is this possible to boot this fluxbuntu install cd from a floppy, or should I be taking another aproach? Thanks.

Have you downloaded the ISO file for fluxubuntu and burned it onto a cd?
In that case, it should be a bootable cd and should work without problems.

Problems that may happen.

Bad download. As paulsep says, where did you get the distro?

Did you burn it at the slowest speed on a high quality cd? I use black cd's. They have never failed me.

Are you trying to load on a very old computer? Some of the old cd drives were never meant to read burned cd's. They may work with the black but may not.

Tell us your computer specs.

I agree with jefro about of bad download.Try xubuntu, or better lubuntu, and install if You want the light desktop evironment like iceWM, E16, E17, or other from synaptic etc. After that configure Your login screen and default desktop evironment as You want.
P.S. I recomend the runtu 10.4 of summer 2010 (not outumn), or of 3'd Feb. of 2011 (not March) and to try what I wrote above. (How to change desktop see lubuntu.net)
