As far as hardware requirements go, this Ubuntu Documentation guide seems relevant. But according to it, you should have enough RAM, even if it's below the recommended amount. –  Christopher Kyle Horton Sep 5 '11 at 18:14
    
Did you ever get this resolved ? Is so, can you please post the solution. If not, can you check the integrity of the alternate CD and / or try the minimal CD See help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM and help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD –  bodhi.zazen Feb 29 '12 at 18:07
