No problem.

Hmm, maybe the installer is having problems with your monitor resolution 
or your video card. How about on the bottom options, make sure the 
resolution is F3->800x600 and then do F6->No ACPI and try install again.

Yup. These things happen. Could you also send the motherboard and 
videocard that you are using?
