It's just stuck there, and won't go to the next step.

What should I do about it? Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated!

Are you in fron of the box physically? If not, could you ssh to the box? Looks like network and ssh should be up. Check the logs to troubleshoot. –  Chida Aug 12 '12 at 12:06
@Chida Yes! I can SSH to the box. Thank you! I am sorry to say that I am not so good at Linux system troubleshooting. Could you provide a more detailed information as to how to troubleshoot with the logs? Thank you so much! –  Yang Jy Aug 12 '12 at 12:41

Check /var/log/syslog, /var/log/kern.log, /var/log/Xorg.0.log, /var/log/dmesg for clues of what is wrong. Generally you are looking for lines that state errors or failures. –  grs Aug 12 '12 at 18:58
