Well I recommend you using knoppix live CD to install instead.follow the following step to do it
1 download the CD from www.knoppix.net
2 burn the ISO image to a CD
3 Boot from the CD
4 Type in knoppix-installer or if you have a good internet connection using knoppix-installer-latest-web.
5 answer the questions as you see fit
6 Reboot, there should be a boot menu for you to choose.
This will install Debian like linux for you though.
