Installing Ubuntu

Hello, seems this list gets quite a few Ubuntu questions. Hopefully it's OK if I toss out one more. Hopefully it's quick with a simple solution. :)

I decided to wipe my older Ubuntu install and try installing from the live CD. For some reason, GDM seems to start but I'm not getting the usual login sound, and I can see enough to note that the screen has various shades of blue, which doesn't jive with my experiences from before. :)

I've burned and booted the live CD, gotten Orca running and played with a few applications. Things seem to work. Clicking the installation icon on the desktop seems to kill speech, however. I see that another window has opened, but it doesn't speak and I can't seem to get Orca to offer any indications of focus change. Sorta reminds me of the behavior when I'd run some graphical application requiring sudo.

Any idea as to what might be happening? I've looked at the forum, but all indications seem to point to simply clicking "install." This is with a current live CD as of late last night/early this morning. I've tried both running orca manually, and via the "press F5, then 3" method, thinking that perhaps this performed additional configuration steps which I'd missed.
