If you have a working debian system you could boot the debian system,
create a new root partition for the ubuntu install and then use
debootsrap to install the system.  Recent versions of debootstrap
support ubuntu targets (see /usr/share/deboostrap/scripts).

I rarely use the installer to install anything.
