I think you might have a bad cd.  Did you check the md5sums of the ISOs?
Comment 3 patgraf 2001-11-13 04:15:30 EST
ok, it was a problem with the cd. it worked fine on an another system but not on the dell inspiron.
Comment 4 Brent Fox 2001-11-13 16:10:50 EST
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'?
