In previous versions of Ubuntu I could run a memtest scan and check the CD for defects from the Ubuntu CD.

This functionality seems to be missing from Ubuntu 10.04 "Lucid Lynx".

No this function is not missing. You should press Esc when the disc starts.

 Maybe a hint on the screen when the disc starts would be helpful.
