I wonder if they fixed the installer?

Not sure about other people's experiences, but the GUI installer in Dapper needed some attention. On Monday I had to wipe Ubuntu off of my laptop and install Windows XP on it (needed XP for a class I'm taking in .NET, and couldn't ever get VMWare going). So, after installing XP, I booted off of the Dapper CD and went to install it as a dual boot machine. I went to the manual partition and told the installer to use 50% of the available space. The installer started going, but after an hour of it sitting on the partition screen, and no activity on the drive, the machine was locked up. Once I had rebooted I discovered that the partition headings were seriously hosed.

I've done fresh installs with Dapper on my laptop, without setting up the dual boot, and it worked fine. However, I'm a bit too timid to try to setup the dual boot again considering how long it takes to get everything with XP installed and secured. Has anyone else here seen the same problem with setting up the dual boot? The laptop I have is a HP n5150.
