Ubuntu installation error (base system)


I just download the last CD version of Ubuntu, and this my first Linux installation on my computer. I boot on the CD and start the installation with no problem until "Base system installation". There I get the error: "The debootstrap program exited with an error (return value 1).
Check /var/log/messages or see virtual console 3 for details".
So I saved the log file.
Any idea? I tried other linux installations before (Suse, knoppix) and none succeeded!

Here is the log:

error: /bin/report-hw: Unable to find /sbin/discover
error: /bin/report-hw: Unable to find lspci.
