Hi, are you reinstalling on an old machine, where you have kept the
/home as a separate partition?  What version are you running (i.e. the
current 13.10)
Are you saying that you get stuck in the installer (ubiquity)?  Or you
get stuck in the Login Screen?  If you get really stuck on the login
screen, does the computer lock up, or can you still interact, and drop
to a tty (Ctrl+Alt+F1)... if you are unfamiliar a tty is the terminal
screen, which will prompt you to log in to your user account, and enter
a password.  This way you can fix the issue, from within the terminal.
