If you already have a GNU/Linux on the machine, could you check that you can
read the CD correctly and ensure that the md5sum checksum of the CD is
correct, with:

  # md5sum /dev/cdrom

and compare it to the particular cdimage snapshot you downloaded:


(You should be able find which day, but checking the size of the ISO if you
still have it downloaded).
