Frozen during Ubuntu install?


I started installing Ubuntu this morning. Right after it gave me the option of installing it side by side with windows and choosing which system to boot each time I restart, it started partitioning. It's been a few hours now and it hasn't moved from 0%. My computer is a triple core with 3 gb of ram, any thoughts?

Thanks for the quick response! How big does the partition need to be?
