If you are using one of the Debian types you can get some info by looking at /var/log/ then either cat or less installer. If you are using Gentoo you can get some info /var/log/ the cat or less emerge.log as for any of the other Linux distro's I would guess you will find some info in /var/log/ as well. It may help if you tell us what distro you are using.
