I can confirm this bug on a HP ProLiant ML310G4 with Ubuntu 6.06 LTS -
it works with 6.10 (server).

When the installation hangs, switch to console 4 and unload the uhci usb module:

$ modprobe -r uhci_hcd

After that, the setup goes on. You'll have trouble again when booting into the installed system.
syslog and kern.log are getting bloated by the messages provided at the original bug report.
To avoid this, you have to unload the uhci module, make a new initrd and boot using the new initrd:

$ sudo rmmod uhci_hcd
$ sudo depmod -a
$ sudo mkinitramfs -o /boot/initrd.img-2.6.15-26-server-custom

modify the file "/boot/grub/menu.lst" and change the line 114:

initrd          /boot/initrd.img-2.6.15-26-server
initrd          /boot/initrd.img-2.6.15-26-server-custom

$ sudo grub-install hd0
$ sudo reboot

Note that this leads to a non-functional USB configuration. A patch to
the Kernel has been done with (vanilla).
