The one-and-only SIG11 Faq:
If you read it segmentation faults can be caused by a myriad of things.
If you can't get to any (partial) errorlog to indicate the whereabouts of the failure (to help solve this) I would suggest stripping the box to its barest necessities, check your BIOS and uncheck any Plug and play settings, and try again in "expert" mode, with text-based installer, and for every option the most "basic" settings, no fancy support for video or whatever, everything *can* be added later on. Also note you can switch terminals with CTRL+ALT+Fx, where x is [1-5] for console, and 7 when the graphical interface loads, if you want to check on things/run commands/write logs to floppy.

HTH somehow
