Consider CentOS 5.3 x86_64 "netinstall". Download/burn the .iso image from any of the locations listed on the CentOS site, follow the instructions and rock-n-roll.
with ubuntu and the screen goes blank select the options and go for safe install

that is after selecting your language and you have the install menu in front of you, hit key F4 and select safe graphics mode ..

Good luck

You want to make sure that when you are burning livecd's that you choose the slowest burn speed. For instance most burning programs have a list for you to choose from. You want to make sure that you are choosing to burn your cd's from the 2x, 4x or the lowest setting that you have.
