I was able to install 11.04 over an WinXP install last night. Then I ran http://www.dban.org/ to wipe the disk and ran into the bug discussed here when I tried to reinstall. I tried various scenarios of direct install vs. live install and different partition schemes. I finally created the disk with a DOS partition table before I started and that seems to allow the install to complete. So for me at least, 11.04 installs if I use an old DOS type partition table.
