I don't know what your particular issue is but here are some standard things to let the community know in order to help you.

Which distribution? Ubuntu Kubuntu etc...
Which install type? Server, desktop, alternative...
Burned it to CD? What speed did you burn?
Dual boot (side by side install with Windows) or fill entire HD with Ubuntu or Wubi perhaps?
At what point does it tell you installation failed?
Were you able to verify the md5sum of your download iso file to make sure it wasn't corrupt?

I have several times had unsuccessful installs because of the CD Media. I now ALWAYS burn at the slowest speed my drive will let me. This used to give me an error in the middle of the installation of packages when it encountered a bad sector on the disk. You can also try a better brand of disk if you are using a cheapy...

Hope this helps, if not, post some more info.
