I used the 64-bit desktop image of ubuntu.  You know, it occurs to me 
that a likely cause for your installer crash might be invalid 
installation media. Either the image got scrambled during download or it 
got scrambled being written to your installation media. I think you 
should download the image again and try a new CD or a different thumb 
drive. How old is your computer? It'd be better if it's old because the 
drivers are going to be stable. On the other hand, an oldcomputer is 
more likely to have problems. So it could be the computer but I'd bet on 
installation media.
