I ran into this too, on 8.04 and 8.10. Don't know why it happens, but if you just sit tight for about 15 min (yeah I am serious), it will load the gparted or whatever.

I hope others trying to install ubuntu 8.04 8.10 or kubuntu 8.04 8.10 find this, because it almost made me give up switching from Wimpdows to Ubuntu. Don't give up! You can do it and life is better here.
