Would like to install x86 desktop Ubuntu over AMD64 Ubuntu server

My intention was to build a dual boot XP Pro 64 and Ubuntu media server. I had installed the AMD64 version of Ubuntu 8.10 server and thought that I would be able to install Apache server. I need a GUI to work in. I tried to boot and install Mythbuntu 32 bit 8.10, but my machine now won't recognize the CD media of the iso of Mythbuntu or the originally installed AMD64 version of Ubuntu server. When I boot in XP 64, I can see the CD and I have the boot sequence to start with CD then HDD. Any suggestions? Had installed XP first then during the Ubuntu install had split the hard disc into two additional partitions, first for the Ubuntu install and second one for a scratch disc. Used the default disc format for the two additional partitions. Think that this is a problem with the download of both mythbuntu 8.10 and ubuntu 8.10. Is there a way to verify the Iso file is intact. Both discs would not start a boot process in another windows machine.

GERMINATE-PKG-DIFF(1)					  Ubuntu General Commands Manual				     GERMINATE-PKG-DIFF(1)

germinate-pkg-diff -- compare seeds against currently installed packages SYNOPSIS
germinate-pkg-diff [-l file] [-m {i|r|d}] [-a arch] [seeds] DESCRIPTION
germinate-pkg-diff compares the expansion of a list of seed packages against the set of packages installed on the current system. When con- structing seeds for a software distribution, it can be used to iteratively find packages installed on developers' systems that should be included in the seeds. A list of seeds against which to compare may be supplied as non-option arguments. Seeds from which they inherit will be added automatically. The default is 'desktop'. OPTIONS
-l, --list file Read the list of currently installed packages from file. The default is to read the output of dpkg --get-selections, and any supplied file should be in the same format. -m, --mode {i|r|d} Set the output mode as follows: i Show the dpkg selections needed to install just these seeds. List unseeded but installed files as ``deinstall'', and seeded but uninstalled files as ``install''. r List unseeded but installed files as ``install'', and seeded but uninstalled files as ``deinstall''. d Show the differences between the packages specified by the seeds and the list of installed packages, in a somewhat diff-like for- mat. -S, --seed-source source,... Fetch seeds from the specified sources. The default is http://people.canonical.com/~ubuntu-archive/seeds/. -s, --seed-dist dist Fetch seeds for distribution dist. The default is ubuntu.precise. -d, --dist dist,... Operate on the specified distributions. The default is precise. Listing multiple distributions may be useful, for example, when exam- ining both a released distribution and its security updates. -a, --arch arch Operate on architecture arch. The default is i386. BUGS
--mode r is useless as dpkg --set-selections input. AUTHORS
