Additionally, viewing the Java Console shows an error similar to the following:
# Error: Issuer certificate is invalid.

The Xilinx 3.1i Installer requires a Java enabled and Certificate enabled web-browser. This error can be seen if the web browser that is being used does not understand the Xilinx Certificate.
The first thing to do is to verify which version of the browser is being used. On the first browser page that comes up during the installation, do a 'Help -> About Communicator (or Netscape)'. If it is not Netscape version 4.5 through 4.72, then you will need to exit the installer, and update your web browser in order to continue.
Netscape is included on the CD for your convenience in the browser directory.
