another little issue

i was given a used but fairly recent (though it still said "ibm" 
not "lenovo") desktop machine with a 1024x768 lcd, which i thought i 
would fix up for a disabled neighbor. it has XP on it, but my 
neighbor used to program in C and so i thought i'd make it a 
dual-boot machine. it has two 3gHz pentium processors and a batch of 
memory. it's old enough that i figured i'd put trinity-ubuntu 10.10 
on it. i boot from the CD, and i get the usual dab of text messages 
during boot, but then -- nothing. screen goes and stays dark, in 
auto-sleep. machine and monitor work fine on windows side, but i 
can't get trinity to install. i can go ahead and give it to him with 
windows, but would rather offer both, because he'll like linux
