Installation Problems Ubuntu 5.1

I am having lots of trouble installing the above. I am new to Linux and
thought this would be a good entry point to the linux world. The
installation keeps failing on the Base System Installation step. It appears
to me that the installer is trying to download components (kernel i think)
from the internet...but all downloads fail. I am on a home network with a
DSL router set up and working. I can ping the installing machine from my
other machine after the network install step, but....

I am stuck.

Any suggestions?


Thanks and regards,
