error during install


Hello,

I have been trying to install Slackware 8.1.0, and when it reaches the d series I get a cat:read:input/output error. It doesn't seem to proceed with the rest of the installation of packages and skips to system configuration. It boots fine - except there is an obvious lack of software packages (networking, X Windows, etc.)

Is there a problem with my CD Drive? I need all the packages installed - what can I do? What does that error mean?

Sincerely,
A very green newbie

It looks like a media error. Try not to choose the 'D' series. Maybe the rest of the CD is OK.
