It takes longer. I wouldn't call it stalling. I know because I did it last night on a 256Mb laptop. The initial CD startup and the partitioning are the worst offenders because they require either a lot of memory or a lot of swap patience.

Outside of those two issues, pretty good.

Broadcom wifi support, not so good. Ubuntuforums has two warring camps between bcm43xx and ndiswrapper, with plenty of wounded unhappy with both since the Dapper release broke ndiswrapper.

It isn't Ubuntu's fault that Broadcom support is native to 2.6.17, but maybe some of it could be backported.
