there's a similar known problem with certain dell inspiron models,
AFAICR the default pcmcia config accesses some mem/io-regions the box
does not like. the tips given for that were to install a later version of
the pcmcia package later on & maybe twiddle with the mem/io settings.

simple workaround to get you going: boot into single user mode,
and make sure that pcmcia is not started (edit /etc/init.d/pcmcia and
insert exit 0 almost at the top or remove/rename /etc/rc2.d/S13pcmcia).

then exit single user mode, it's boot up into multiuser and you can
complete the installation normally.
