Lars: Esc and Ctrl-C won't interrupt the installer while it's doing something, unless it's specifically displaying a cancellable progress bar. The way to distinguish between just the userspace installer code being hung and the entire system being hung is to try to switch to a different virtual console. The installer itself is on Alt-F1; there are shells on Alt-F2 and Alt-F3; and the syslog is on Alt-F4.
