yaboot installer crashes while installing to iPod via Firewire

ubiquity (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

Was attempting to install Ubuntu 6.10 to my iPod via Firewire (to use as a portable personal Ubuntu installation- attach to Mac, reboot, voila-Ubuntu). The drive was not completely clean at the time- I had been attempting this in various ways for a while, before finally deciding to let Ubuntu handle it automatically. Unfortunately, wound up with this:

This should be possible with Intrepid. Please reopen if it isn't.
