redhat 8.0 lock up


ok i've been trying to install linux RH 8.0 and the first set of iso images seemed fine. Till it was about 75 percent through the installation. and it froze up.! so i did a media check. disc one came out find but disc two media check froze up with about 98% done. so i went and downloaded it again from different ftp sites. and everytime it's the same story. Disc two and three will be corrupt in some way. When i burn it it will freeze up at like 82%, it will freeze up during media check. and i'll redownload it from the same ftp and the same thing will happen. i'll move on to another ftp and i'll get some type of corruption. is this normal when downloading iso's from redhat? i've wasted like 9 cd's and only got one good cd that works (disc1) but still have yet to get any ones that work or disc 2
