Katya DVD install hangs near end

I have tried to install Katya 32 bit on my experimental machine with both the RC candidate and Final release. I have formatted the / and /home partitions. The installation hangs at the download and install of language packs. This is right at the end. The only way to recover is a hard reset. As Grub is not configured properly the computer boot to a fail message.
Using the CD image and updating to the DVD spec goes without problems. I am writing this on the machine in question.
Has anyone else had this problem?

Also the wireless card which worked well in Mint 10 is no longer recognized. I will investigate this further.

Have you checked the md5sum of the DVD?

How much RAM has that computer?

Sorry, yes MD5 sum of both DVD's was correct. Same for CD that worked. Remember 2 DVD's 1 RC and 1 final, burnt at different times both hung at the same place.

Edit: Computer has 4GB RAM

Very strange to me.

Yes, it's some problem. If you have 4GB of RAM and a 64-bit computer you should use the 64-bit version of Mint.

I have a similar computer running the 64 bit version of Mint 10.

It has a few minor problems running GoogleEarth and I wanted to try it out on a 32 bit system.

I still think the DVD should install correctly.

BTW my new 32 bit system seems to run GEarth much better.
