I have had that problem myself before. AFAIK it's not directly related 
to FAI but Ubuntu's installer. At the time I asked around on their IRC 
channel and was told to boot into liveboot and delete the partitions 
manually using some partition tool (e.g. gparted) and attempt the 
install after doing so.
