Have you performed the media check option on all three discs when asked? Each
disc has a unique checksum (MD5) - the mediacheck helper utility can determine
if the disc has a proper checksum. If there are any scratches, corrupted data
[due to a bad transfer], dirty lens [hence corrupting the data], or a faulty
CD-ROM drive - you'll find out.
I purchased RH7, but thought I would try the download before purchasing RH8. I
ran the MD5sum on all three disks and clicked OK i=on the check disk option
during install. It never gets past the first disk so, I don't know about the
others during install. After the first failed attempt, I downloaded disk 1 again
from an entirely different mirror, ran MD5sum, checked media during install etc.
Still no joy.
Thanks for your help.
Sounds like you have a bad set of CDs given the error message.
