I am an epic failure of a geek. Instead of downloading the graphical installer for Ubuntu I went and downloaded the alternate install.
On another note, I discovered I made a mistake when I installed Windows yesterday; I had partitioned my harddrives into two, leaving the larger one unformatted by mistake. This is a good mistake though. I forgot that I wanted to keep my media separate from my Operating Systems and had almost installed Windows together with my media. This way, I have to use Wubi again, but it also means that hopefully my media will be safe.
Now if only my connection would be better (yes I know, my fault for blowing it last night).
