Ubuntu hangs during installation phase when installing as a guest OS => Fixed in SVN.

Posted the following on the Virtualbox forum on the 9th November but there has not been any responses.
Have been trying to install Ubuntu 7.10 as a Guest OS onto a Windows XP Host machine. I have been using an .iso image file on the hard drive to try and install from and the installation process gets as far as 82% "Scanning the mirror" and then hangs.
After some reading I realised that this version may not be fully supported so I tried installing Ubuntu 7.04 from the CD. This time I got to 83% "Downloading package lists" before the installation process hung.
I have looked on various forums for answers but have not been able to find one specific to this. So I'm going to include the settings that I have used below and apologise if I include too much information. I'm new to Linux and VM software so I'm not entirely sure what to include.
The only settings that differed during the 2 different attempts were that in the first attempt the CD/DVD-ROM was pointed at the .iso file on my hard drive and for the 7.04 attempt it was F: drive.

If anyone can help me it would be appreciated. Thanks.
