unpacking of archive failed: cpio: read failed-input/output error


Hi guys,

downloaded a driver on a floppy and tried my way through the command line installing it. Think I did everything OK with the help of some info I found, but when I tried to 'rpm -i package-name' I got the error:

unpacking of archive failed: cpio: read failed-input/output error

Had some words with my computer about it but no avail. Any other thoughts?
