You are installing from a cdrom, I assume.  Do you get to the installer menu?

I have installed i386 Current, amd64 current and amd64 Release on my  
Acer Aspire 5520-5679 and the only problem that I had was that it  
could not bring up the installer and after consulting the list found  
that by pressing the space bar many times it would come up.  Once  
installed all is great.  Everything but the Crystal Eye Camara works.

If yours seems to be locking up, try the space key.  IIRC, press it  
until it starts to beep, rebelliously.
