Question Why is partitioning stuck at 0%? (Ubuntu 7.10)

Okay, as I am trying to install Ubuntu the partitioner stays at 0%.
It has been at that same percentage for about half an hour now.
It says it is "Resizing Partition..." and it just stays there.

Model: Gateway GM5626
Memory: 3GB DDR2 Dual Channel Memory
Hard Drive: 500GB SATA II Hard Drive
Processor: Intel Pentium Dual-Core Processor E2180
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce 8500GT Video

How long does the partitioning usually take?
Any suggestions?
Windows sucks and I was really wanting Ubuntu.

i suggest using gparted to make your partitions first then when you start the ubuntu install you only have to set your mount points...

gparted has a live CD
