Question Installation problems


I tried to install ubuntu 8.10 insside windows.After about 80% installation was over when it showed 'getting time from network' i clicked on skip and immediately installation failed.I tried two times but same thing happens.
PC Conf-Pentium D--1gb RAM--20gb space for installing ubuntu.

I am presently using ubuntu 8.04.i used pkgenpack to generate .servicepack files in fedora.what is its equivalent in ubuntu?
thanx in advance...

Check your CD

It is always better to do a clean install.

Boot from CD and install it. Read the install instructions

Did you try not to press "skip" when you see "getting time from network"?
