I'm trying to install Ubuntu on a Mac OS computer. I burned the iso file to a cd but when I try to install the program nothing happens. Any ideas?

You'll need to run emulation/VM type software - such as Parallels - on the mac and then install Ubuntu inside this. Take a look here for possible help. http://lifehacker.com/software/ubuntu/how-to-install-ubuntu-linux-on-a-mac-256395.php

You can also completely ditch osx, or dual boot or... If your question is solely about installing Ubuntu a Mac hardware I think a better place to ask could be over at ubuntuforums.org. There are dedicated forums for Apple Intel:

and one for Apple PPC:
