If you are installing Ubuntu using the livecd, perhaps
try installing using the alternate disk instead. This is just an
installer meaning it doesn't load an entire usable desktop _and_ the installer.
This tends to be more successfull with less ram available.
For Edubuntu this would be the 'Edubuntu 7.10 Classroom Server CD'
If the system runs too slowly once up and running you may want to try
XUbuntu (which uses a more lightweight window manager) instead and then add
the Education packages.
 This is a checkbox option on the Ubuntu download page
