Which version and edition are you trying to install. Currently there are three somewhat different installers in use in Linux Mint. Mint 9 uses the older Ubiquity installer that it inherited from Ubuntu. Mint 10RC uses an updated version of Ubiquity that functions slightly differently. Mint Debian (LMDE) uses a new installer written by clem and ikey just for this version.

It is difficult to advise you without knowing which installer is giving you problems. Please post back with information on which Mint you are trying to install.
