Additional Comments

There are two issues. The first is the sound. There appears to be an issue with the ALSA plugin version of 1.0.23 which comes with this Ubuntu version. Upgrading to 11.04 fixes the sound problem. Underun issues in the sound handling cause problems with sound support hanging. The second issue is with installation. You must mount the installation media with the norock option since there seems to be a compatibility issue with the media and Linux's interpretation. See here for details: and here for the fix:
