I have a 20GB disk.  The install hangs or crashes with the error message
around 35% usually, sometimes less, sometimes more.  I have attached the
Virtual Machine file if that helps.  As far as the virtual machine goes,
I have tried both IDE and SATA disk controllers, 3D acceleration and no
3D acceleration, IO APIC and no IO APIC.

Thanks for the link,
