I've just got the install working from the amd-alternate cd (and it also boots with the live amd64 cd).  Used the daily builds from the 16th
I've got an ECS P965T-A motherboard and the solution was to disable the legacy USB keyboard/mouse support.  The install then proceeded (with the same errors as other people receive:
Cannot allocate resource region {1} of device 0000:03:00.0
These messages display, then after a short pause it continues.  The only difficulties I had were:
1. I had to plug in a non-usb keyboard to add the boot options (irqpoll) but once the install started the USB keyboard/mouse worked fine
2. The grub install failed as I've got a separate IDE disk with XP on it.  I opened up anew window (ALT-F2), changed root to /target, and then did /sbin/grub-install /dev/sda.
And that was it - simply disabling legacy usb support seems to have fixed things.  I did the text based install, not the OEM version.
