Loading Ubuntu 7.04 live CD

For all of you having problems loading the Ubuntu 7.04 live CD, I've found out that there are quite a lot of problems due to the DMA setting on the DVD drive. This can be solved by adding the proper parameter in the kernel boot line.
  1. Load the CD and wait for the menu to display
  2. Press F6 in order to edit the boot command line
  3. Add ide=nodma just before the two dashes at the end of the line
  4. Press Enter to start
Maybe this is just a problem of my drive unit, but I think it's worth to write it here.
