Bug Description

(note ubiquity is the package ubuntu selected for me)

Some action in the Ubuntu installer made it crash during installation. It appeared to me to be during the step where the installer said something about detecting connected hardware.

I am not sure I can provide much more information.

Looking at the log file, it looks like it crashed right after attempting to install the wireless card(s). I have two plugged in (for no good reason), one is a broadcom (it loaded the Broadcom 43xx driver) and the other is a netgear WG111v3 USB wireless adapter. Ubuntu was connected on the netgear and the broadcom didn't seem to be functioning.
