If it helps, I was loading on a Toshiba Satallite laptop with a Toshiba 6GB harddrive. I can load the CD and browse the web, do email, IM chat, everything so Ubuntu can work with my system.

Thank you for your bug report. I apologize that no one has gotten back to you about this yet.
Is this fixed in Edgy Final / Feisty / Gutsy / Hardy?

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. You reported this bug a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering is this still an issue for you? Can you try with latest Ubuntu release? Thanks in advance.

It appears that the kernel encountered too many errors when trying to write to your hard disk and gave up in order to avoid causing further damage. This is often due to a faulty hard disk, and at any rate isn't an installer bug as such. It may help to check whether the hard disk is old and in need of replacement, or to move the system to a cooler environment.

The relevant syslog excerpts that demonstrate this follow:
