Bug Description

I know this should problem be reported upstream, but I'm not sure where sorry...

Yesterday I installed Mint. I started to download and install the restricted drivers, but since my internet connection is playing up lately, it was taking rather a long time. After about half an hour, the progress bar was about 10% complete, so I pressed cancel. Pressed it multiple times but it didn't work. The entire process completed.....

Using Linux Mint 10 64-bit DVD

Though it may be Jockey doing the installation behind the scenes, any addition of a Cancel button would require changes to Ubiquity.
