How reproducible:
My PC has 20GB disk. In 5 GB I installed windows and while
installing linux, I let it partition on its own. My RAM is 64 MB.
So it kept 188 MB for swap, roughly the same for /boot and
rest of it for /.
Then everything went OK, till the time it was actually going to install 
the packeages and then suddely I got the above message in a window saying
an unhandled exception has occured.

Could you try doing a text-based install by booting with 'linux text'?
