This doesn't mean much. It can be an arbitrary small detail (E.g. a
kernel or a packaging bug on a DVD), which may spoil everything in a
particular scenario, esp. on a machine, which never has seen Linux
before.

I recently tried to install Fedora 9 on a brand new machine and ended up
as you did with Ubuntu. Any attempts to install FC9 failed in very early
stages of installing. I resorted to trying FC10-Beta2, which at least
enabled me to boot and to install. Now, I am experiencing the "fun" of
rawhide ;) 

If I were consequent, I would now give Ubuntu or openSUSE a try :)
