    Install stops on dell inspiron

    I'm attempting to install 8.04.1 on to my Dell Inspiron 2200. It seems to load fine and I can begin the installation. When I get to step 3 and hit next It looks to load the paritioner, a window comes up saying it's loading and looks to go to 100%. But then the window exits and I'm just left there with the mouse pointer in a working state(circle with the spinning pattern).

    Please let me know what else you might need, I'm fairly new to linux this is my first time installing.

    Same thing happened to me yesterday on an Inspiron 8100. I was installing over an existing NTFS partition where Windows XP Pro had resided.

    I just powered off and started the install over. And all was well.
