Description of problem:
I had a package fail to install because of a possible corruption on the CD. The package was something that I decided was not important and I wanted the installation to continue anyways.

The installer did not seem to offer a choice to 'skip and continue'. The only choice was to retry. When I did that, then the only choice was to reboot.

Can you please add a choice to 'ignore and skip' or 'skip and continue' when a package fails to install due to CD corruption?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install from CD (CD would have to have corrupted package)
2.Try to 'ignore and skip' package installation error

Actual Results:  System re-booted; all work on install was lost

Expected Results:  Allowed to ignore the install error and continue on with the next package
