Copy the disks to your hard drive, and install from there. Or just copy CD1 to your hard drive, and put CD2 into the physical drive.
This isn't necessarily a Linux issue, but a problem with the installer. This happens with Oracle installations too, and with lots of other programs that have shoddy installers.
