Comfusion hangs on install

Hello all, my first post here.
Here is my problem. I tried to install Comfusion on my new-to-me old Compaq Presario 2175US laptop. I had the laptop plugged in for about 15 minutes before the install, when I had entered my info for root user, and it started doing the install, I accidentally knocked the power adapter plug out and the battery drain halted my install(I was AFK as the laptop is pretty old and I needed some coffee). I tried to reinstall, but I got a lot of error codes coming after I tried to go to install from the boot menu again. I just installed a new hard drive, before the first install try, so there is no data to lose if I do a fresh install again. But I keep getting the error codes showing. How can I remove the old corrupt install, and redo my install.
Thank you for your time.

Edit: I did check the cd for errors and found none.

During the installation script ... if you get to the partitioning phase ... delete all the partions.

If you continue to have errors please post the details on them.

I made a work around thanks to a old friend who told me to try another distro and do a repartition. So I burned a ubuntu 7.10 iso, and booted off the live cd and installed that. I now have it working. Thanks.
