I'm trying to install Ubuntu 9.04 Netbook Remix (NBR) on an ASUS eeepc
2G surf (700).  It runs Ubuntu just fine from the USB stick.  But when
I try to install it, it hangs at 22% during the "Installing system
Copying files ..."

I checked the md5sum of the downloaded image and it checked:

$ grep ubuntu-9.04-netbook-remix-i386.img MD5SUMS | md5sum -c -
ubuntu-9.04-netbook-remix-i386.img: OK

When ran the "Check disc for defects"  I get the following:

Checking integriy, this may take some time
Check finished: errors found in 1 files!
Press any key to reboot your system

Thinking I may have gotten a bad image I downloaded another image from
a different site:


I check with md5sum and it checked OK.  The md5sum files were the same
as before.

I'm going to try to hunt down which file has the error.

But I'm curious if anyone else experience issues with Ubuntu's NBR?
Has anyone successfully installed the NBR?
