Could you please attach the whole of /var/log/installer/syslog (and also /var/log/syslog and /var/log/partman, if possible) rather than just the start of it? The start of the log doesn't really help me much at all. Thanks in advance.

Hey, sorry about that.

I got it to work. I burned my CD at too fast a speed and it's just
kinda unreliable. After a couple more tries it worked. You must get
tons of bug reports from n00bs all the time. Thanks for the quick
response.
