Such problems with the install

Tried to do two Ubuntu installs this weekend, failed at both. One was
the i386 iso on an AMD K6, the other was the PowerPC iso on a Pismo.
MD5 checksums fine, CD passes the installer's scan. I have downloaded
each file twice from bittorrent and once from ubuntu.org.
On the AMD, in every case the installer failed at the 'install base
system' step on kernel-image-2.6-386
in particular, /usr/sbin/mkinitrd: line 1: 32123 Segmentation fault
mk cramfs /tmp/mkinitrd.31773/initrd /dev/fd/3 >/dev/null
Failed to create image
The powerbook is able to get through all of phase 1 of the install but
then informs me processing has halted because there were too many
Can anyone tell me if it is possible/probable for hardware failures to
be causing these errors? Both of these systems have taken quite a lot
of abuse--i just don't want to put more troubleshooting time in to them
than is needed.
Thanks for any input.
