I've got a 500gig external hard drive. Would that do it?

No, it wipes out all data on the drive, and the system is designed for flash drives.

Thanks for the assistance everyone.

Turns out the problem was the DVD drive on the laptop I'm trying to install Linux on!!

Took the DVD drive out of another laptop and put it in the one I'm working with, and it seems to be installing all OK now!!

Many thanks once again!

Rob, that is great news, thanks for letting us know.

At this point it is customary to change the title of your original post, adding "Solved" to it. That way we know you are not still waiting for an answer.

Nice job sticking with it, you earned geek points throughout the ordeal!  8)
