I've experienced similar behavior on all memory-starved hosts I tried
to install to at the uni the other day.  Graphical installs would
consistently get blocked at varying points.  Text installs completed
without a hitch.  This was on 64-MiB boxes, FWIW.  No useful messages
in any of the VTs, and not a real hang.  Since the Release Notes
mentioned 192MiB was a minimum for graphical, I went with text, and
that worked.
