sorry, it is dreadful to install at the moment, there are about 7 dots 
at the bottom of the ubiquity installer, each one isn't really a dot, it 
is a progress bar with zero length, this means that every page of the 
installer will read out loads of progress bar statuses
You can fight your way through this, but it is hard. Hopefully 14.04 
will be installable as an LTS.
