[ubuntu-uk] Problem Installing Ubuntu 10.04.1 Desktop

I tried to install from CD on a machine running Windows 7 Enterprise.
I booted from the CD and told the installer to use the entire disk.
However when it came to creating the partitions and formatting them I
got a message that it could not mount the swap space. I tried this a
couple of times with the same result.

Then I tried installing by manually creating a / partition with no
swap. The install worked.

So any ideas why I can't get a swap partition?
