I tried to install Dapper on several computers first using the text-based installer. After multiple attempts resulting in a black-screen of death, I tried using the graphical installer. The graphical installer took over three hours to load up and when it finally came up, it would not work either. I then had to go back to my 5.10 cds, reinstall from scratch, and then use apt to upgrade to 6.06. This was not the best impression for an "enterprise" release.

BTW, a word of advice to the Ubuntu team, I actually like the text based installer better than the GUI based installer. In fact, I like it better than the SuSE and RedHat installer too. It is a lot nicer and faster than the others and feels more intuitive too.


By all means, file a bug report. I've had big problems with the graphical installer, but never with the text-mode (now called "alternate") installer. It would be sad if Ubuntu regressed.
