Hi,
Can you answer 3 questions for us? (well, 4 counting this one)
- How much memory is in your system?
- What CPU is in your system?
- What is the exact name of the ISO that you are trying to install?

According to the release notes:

Minimum RAM for graphical installation is 640 MiB.

It doesn't work too good with the minimum required memory either. XP works pretty good on the same PC though.
