Well, good news and bad news.

The good news is that I got it to install & update after using
'ide=nodma' at the boot.

The bad news is that I am also getting the same Hash Sum mismatch error
messages as you are. So, it's definately a bug/problem.

and the files that seem to be screwed up:
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=ubuntu+%2BPackages.gz
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=ubuntu+%2BSources.bz2

Not sure if this is related:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/apt-mirror/+bug/184063
[ apt-mirror should mirror .bz2 files]

I reckon it's probably time to file a bug report - do you know how to do
that?
