Software error in SuSE 9.1 Personal


Everything is great and fine until I get this message in the installation:

Software
Cannot read package data from installation media. Media Error?
*ERROR: No propsal

and it will not let me go any further. I downloaded my ISO from www.linuxiso.org and I did the 700MB one (I didn't download the live-eval or the FTP by the way). I then used Nero Burning ROM to do it (version 6.6.0.3) with a write and finalize. I've burned through three CD's and I keep getting the same error. I love how YaST is so easy to use but I can't get through this install.

I tried going to Distrowatch (they have a 9.2 DVD ISO) but their page is down on the SuSE 9.2 dl, just my luck. Any help would be great here. Thanks.

I've seen this problem a LOT lately when trying to get SuSE 9.2 Professional DVD to install on my friends machines. The disc works just fine on my laptop and machines at home, no scratches or smudgemarks anywhere. However, when I try to boot off it from their machines, I go through YaST's installation preparation and when it comes time for package selection, it belches at me saying it "cannot read from installation media." I still haven't found a fix. The only thing I can think of is try getting the 6 or 7 CD ISOs for 9.2 and giving that a go. Good luck!

Hmm... OK thanks for the help, I might just go Mandrake until I can get SuSE running, I just need Linux instead of Win right now. I will also check it see if the file is corrupt when I dl it.

So where should I go to download this? linuxiso and distrowatch I'm trying to stray away from a bit. I don't want an FTP or a live-eval, just straight up SuSE 9.2 Pro. If a link could be provided it would be most appreciated.
