You didn't say which CD you are installing from: LiveCD, Alternate CD?

Are you attempting to install into an existing partition, or wanting to
allow Ubuntu to install and use the entire drive?

If you can give us a few more details about your system, and the
hardware that you are trying to do the install on then it will be easier
to assist you.
