I had all kinds of issues with the release candidate versions of Hardy.
But once the official product came out, the install of both the i386
and the AMD64 versions (desktop & alternate) went like a charm.
Generally I d/l the live/boot CD/DVDs using a bit torrent client rather
than direct d/l. I know it takes longer but there are two things gained
(and YMMV on both of these). (1) The torrent process will ensure by its
only internal checksumming that I do indeed get an uncorrupted ISO
image, and (2) I get to help spread the Ubuntu message by helping to
distribute the ISO. I still have to burn the disk slowly (I never burn
anything important at over 16x regardless of what the mfg say about
their disks) but this process means I never have a suspect live CD/DVD.
