Installation issues / Re: Fail on installation

Hello all,
  Well I too had this similar problem of the installation stopping when it got too /dev/hd5  or something another.  I edited the file and got a couple steps further it seems.   I believe all of the archives were extracted properly but it stalls out again at:

tar : Read checkpoint  500000
tar : Read checkpoint  510000
tar : Read checkpoint  520000
tar : Read checkpoint  530000
/dev/hda1 : UID="6f5c18dd-4187-455d-8f8f-9a2f3c5178d5" SEC_TYPE="ext2" TYPE="ext3"
/dev/hda5 : TYPE="swap" UUID="e640c39a-65d1-46f9-a081-bd5a50d140f6"
Probing devices to guess BIOS drivers.  This may take a long time.

So either I'm impatient and not waiting long enough or something screwy is going on.  What do the experts think? 

Lets see the system specs are:
Motherboard ASUS A7N8X
Athlon XP 2400
1GB memory
80GB Western Digital IDE harddrive
ATI 9800 AIW PRO 128MB  (god this card causes me so much pain in linux)
