I think you might have a bad cd. Did you check the md5sums of the ISOs?
ok, it was a problem with the cd. it worked fine on an another system but not on the dell inspiron.
Actually, I think it might be a problem with the DVD drive. Can you try
installing with the DVD drive, but boot the installer with 'linux ide=nodma'?
