Bug Description

Binary package hint: hal-info

Trying to install Ubuntu 10.10 on an older P4 system that exceeds all recomended requirements. I have operated Ubuntu 9.10 on this machine previously. I am performing a fresh install using only one partition. My Keyboard repeat gets stuck in the "Who are You?" information screen. When I start to input my info the keyboard repeat gets sutck and I can not finish inputing the necessary data. Someitmes it gets stuck on the name box, othertimes I can get to password but never get everything inputed in time to click the forward button. I have tried installing 10.10 about 6 times with 3 different keyboards and 3 different mice(although the mouse always works ok) I tried changing settings in my BIOS, also tried to burn the iso onto a second disc in case it was a bad burn but the exact same thing happens each time in the same screen. I have seen other reports of keyboard repeat being stuck however no other reports seem to be during the install process. Since I can't even install this version I will have to revert toa n older release either 10.04 or 9.10
