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.
