No it is on Fat32.

He  uses  Windows XP  and not Vista.

If its XP, has he tried the Error Correction mode with the Installer CD?

Where is the Error Correction mode availalble. On Windows CD or Ubuntu CD?
He told me one thing now. He had started the installation once and during
that process he hadn't deleted his swap partition that he had for Fedora and
he had not recreated the swap itseems. Then after the 5% of the installation
process it had given the following error itseems
"ext3 filesystem creation in partition #9 of SCSI(0,0,0)(sda) failed"
something similar to this.

So then he had halted the installation procedure and without even restarting
the LiveCD he had started the installation again. But this time during the
partiton selection he had deleted both the ext3 partition and swap and he
had recreated new ones itseems.
