    Iam trying to install 10.04 on a partition that already contains 10.04(Actually i have changed MB and CPU,so want to install from scratch after taking Backup)
    During the install,around 79% completion,setup says "Retrieving files [i]1[/i] of [i]25[/i]".The Number keeps on increasing.There is also a ‘Skip’ button near it,clicking on which cancels the retrieving operation and setup continues to last.
    Can you tell me what files are being retrieved.
