maybe try burning a second cd?
(disk error)

OR (maybe the light just went on from previous readings), some of the installs need boot floppies... is it trying to do a floppy seek when it tries to install?

(not sure, my woody cd installed no problem, but i bought mine from a site in canada)

if helpful, please donate to the FSF.

If you still have the original ISO image, check it with md5summer to see if the image is good.

If it is, try burning another CD.

Does it get into loading the kernel, or does it die after the first screen?

After I hit enter, it tried to load isolinux then gave the error. I have tried multiple burns. I got the same errors when I tried to install Mandrake. I also tried loading Knoppix. I am looking for options...

It might be detecting your hardware incorrectly, list your hardware and also try KNOPPIX's extra booting options, like noscan... read the Cheat codes and FAQ that are on the CD...

Is there any reason I would have to flash my BIOS with a newer version? I used FDISK to create an active DOS partition on 50% percent of the drive, should I have an active Linux partition before Linux will install or will the CD boot disk initiate a prompt for partitioning?

Its odd. I decided to change my Lite-on CD-RW from secondary master to primary slave and reburn on new RW discs. Debian, Slackware, Mandrake, and Knoppix all load without fail. I then tried to boot from the old discs with no luck. I also tried erasing the discs and reburning the images... nothing. I wonder why? I wonder if there is a better way to format CD-RW discs or do I have a 5-pack of junk. Anyway, thanks for the help.

I bougt a 5-pack of bad RW disc's... I thought you had these on regular CD-R's... There is an option at boot on knoppix to test the CD also... boot: knoppix testcd

I'm glad it worked out for you, I wouldn't pursue the BIOS though, I would think that it was the way the hardware was detected by Lunix...

Same Problem with P3 computer

I agree I tried installing Fedora 7 and Debian 5.0.2 on my Intel 810 P3 boafd 933Mhz Processor with 40GB HDD. I get same Disk Error 80 on both Operating systems. But, the DVDs work fine on other computers with higher end specs.
