When I boot the cd installer, the screen gets filled by many variously
coloured characters.
There it hangs. No way to get out from this situation, I tried every
single anc combination of chars i know, but with no luck. 
I burnt 2 CD's. I got the same error. I burnt the second just because
the first was a little old, so I thought to a surface degeneration or
whatsover problem. I thought also to a cd recorder issue, because my
notebook is 2 days old, but with the same recorder I succesfully burnt
and ran a Knoppix image.
Take care,
