As long as the bug https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/drupal6/+bug/371187 is open, you need these steps before you can start Drupal:
1. enable an Apache module:
"sudo a2enmod rewrite"

As long as the bug https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/drupal6/+bug/371187 is open, you need to do these steps before you can start Drupal:

1. enable an Apache module and restart Apache:
"sudo a2enmod rewrite"
"sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart"

2. change the line 97 in /etc/drupal/6/htaccess from this one:
# RewriteBase /drupal
to this:
RewriteBase /drupal6

3. open your browser and start the install process of Drupal:
