Hello all.
I am trying to install Ubuntu using the Wubi web-based installer ver. 8.04.1, rev. 506 on my laptop. Said laptop is AMD64, and I am trying to install on a partition other than windows' root dir. What happens is that the installer will download numerous iterations of ~500-600 megs of files. Between each iteration, the top progress bar, "checking installation files", will advance just a little bit. Is this supposed to be happening? I've been running the installer for a few days.

Thanks in advanced,
