seems to be caused by Philips Cd-rom (PHILIPS CDRW1610A) : other people had the 
same problem (http://www.spinics.net/lists/rh-inst/msg07756.html : RH 8 Install 
(BETANAG) ????? = same problem...)

Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2002-10-14 09:39:09 UTC
Please boot with 'linux mediacheck' and verify your media following the
instructions at http://rhlinux.redhat.com/anaconda/mediacheck.html

Comment 3 Need Real Name 2002-10-14 15:41:51 UTC
I've done it; the medias are OK;
I've installed RedHat with the same cds on another computer and it worked fine.
