You might need to reburn that ISO. That is where I would start.

Before reburning, I recommend testing the CDs, there should be an option to check media before you begin the install.

How about trying text mode install, or switching in a CD drive from another computer, to see if either of these help?

It could be worth disconnecting the drive you're currently trying to install from, and setting the other to master and trying to install from that.
