I am new to Ubuntu and I am trying to install ubuntu 8.10 using the 64 bit DVD.

My computer is a Compac Presario with AMD 64 bit processor running XP Media Edition 2005.

I placed the DVD in the drive and started the install. It goes thru the screens until the window shows 'Partitioner checking hard drive'. The progress bar gets to 50% and stays there. Nothing else happens.

Thanks for any help.
