Subject description: To help us see your problem
 

G'day Abel,

While we on the Forum can copy and paste your links into our browsers to see each image, to make it easy for us to just click your image references to see them, when you type them in your posts, just start each link with (ignore quotes when doing it):
"[url]"
and finish the link's text with "[/url]"

E.g. should look this this if you Preview your post:
https://imgur.com/TC4q2XT
and
https://imgur.com/bgF8wy7

Re your low RAM, if you install a Full Pup in its own partition, while making a partition for Puppy (format as ext2 or ext3, size ~5GB?), you could also make a linux swap partition (~500MB, about double your RAM), if there's not already one on your hard-drive from your Ubuntu set-up.

Have fun,

David S.

That error message usually has to do with having a bad burn of the iso image on the CD.

You have an old disk drive and it probably cannot read very fast.

Best results if you burn the iso image at a slow speed.
4X should work.

Condition of the CD is important.
Clean.
No scratches or very minor ones.

Disk drive clean inside.
Read lens clean.

CD disk drives do not work forever.
Hopefully your drive is still working OK.

Uptade:

I will order a new CD from the internet since the CD I had was way too fast.

I think I'll also see if the computer has both RAM slots full, maybe I could increase the RAM of my computer, who knows?

The answer above got duplicated, so I'm editing this copy.

Anyways, thanks to everyone for the help! Smile

Not so fast!

Who are you getting the CD from?

You have no way of burning your own from a downloaded Puppy iso?
