This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.

yeah, your installation CD's are probably corrupt and as mentioned above you may have to get new ones. I think fedora Core has an option to test your installation media before you actually begin the installation, try that and see if it informs you of nay problems with the media.
I am trying to do it on a harddisk, with no partitions yet, well thats atleast what i want it too, but i cant get to the installation yet so. But i dont think the cds are broken, it looks kinda wierd that i download both fedora core 2 and suse 9.2 and burn them and get kinda the same error. Is there some solution to this? Or have none of you seen this before?
CRC ( Cyclic Redundancy Check ) is a common error that occurs when your drive cannot read a CD / DVD disc.
This can be due to many factors including poor quality media, a poor burn, a dirty disc, or degrading reading abilities of the drive that is trying to read the disc.
The disc might be readable in another drive, then again it might not be.
I suggest trying to burn the files onto another type of CD-R and trying your install again.
