    Check your CD's for errors, or your CD drive for problems. That's why I
    prefer to do network installs whenever possible: I hate having problems with
    CD-R's and really old or beat up CD drives.

    And be prepared to restart your installation from scratch.

    By the way, which Fedora are you working with? Fedora Core 1 or one of the
    test releases?
