I don't understand why Raspbmc just couldn't release flashable image files like all the other OSes their install procedure seems a bit over the top.
If you still cannot get Raspbnc working then perhaps OpenELEC would be more successful http://sparky0815.de/openelec-download- ... fat-files/

It ok, I did it. But I also try Open ELEC. I choose 4GB image, because I have 4GB SD card :), but... after a while dd's work, it come with that there is no enough space in my card. o_O
And for that I trying to install 2GB.

I had the same problem, fixed it by running the script with python2

> sudo python2 install.py
