I installed over FTP without a single problem and I don't have that file. I
didn't check if the installation program looked for it or not, and the logs
are gone now, but the installation succeeded. The only problem I had with the
ftp install was that you had to drop to text mode to set it up, but apart
from that everything went swimmingly.

As to what your problem is, when the install fails, try switching to one of
the other virtual consoles (toggle through them all with ctrl-alt-f#, where #
is 1 through 10, except 7 which is where the graphics are). With any luck
there'll be a reasonably helpful error message.
