Did you check the md5sum of the ISOs before using them?  The kernel output says
it's finding all kinds of bad sectors on the cdrom.

Also, is this a Dell Dimension XPS?

The pc is not a Dell.  I reburned the image, and attempted reinstall.  Install 
program complained often about not being able to find files due to bad media, 
but after ejecting, and reinserting the cdrom, the installer always found the 
file.  Eventually the install was successful, and I am now up and going.

Hmm...sounds like the cdrom drive could be having intermittent problems, or the
cd's were scratched or damaged in a way that was bad enough to cause it to fail
sometimes but not always.  Resolving as 'worksforme'.  Thanks for your report.
