Thanks for the info, although I already have a 30 gig partition set up now. Good to know for the future though because I'm going to be messing with a desktop I'm turning into a server and my laptop later on this week.
Okay, just tried to install again, and I crashed in the same exact spot. It says the programs name was "ubiquity" and I'm trying to install Ubuntu 7.10. Could a reboot possibly fix this? Or maybe I should just burn another cd, or just change things up completely and install through windows like you guys suggested? Any help is appreciated.
