Hi Anuj,
what does exactly happen?  what part of the installation process ? If you are
already in the ncurses interface, you can switch to another VT (Alt-F2 throught
to F4 at least should work ), where far more detailed information about the
installation process is shown. I think Alt-F2 should give you a console where
you can issue some commands to see what's going on.
