[Ubuntu Chicago] Install 8.04 as Xen Guest

Kevin,

I found that the "alternate" install disk is a bit more verbose than
the "desktop disk", especially when an install fails. it will stop the
installation process when something goes wrong, give an error message,
and allow you to retry that step in the process and continue on if it
works.
