Package problem while installing RHEL 3

I tried to install RHEL 3 several times, but I always got the same error.
Error message is something like this:

"There was an error installing redhat-artwork-0.73.2-2E. This can
indicate media failure, lack of disk space, and/or hardware problems.
This is fatal error and your install will be aborted. Please verify your
media and try your install again."

Tried to use different cd-drives and medias. Always the same result.
What could also be the problem?

Maybe your CD is corrupt. Have you tried to install this package using yum.

- double check the MD5 sum on your iso images

If those are OK...

- boot off CD1

- type "linux mediacheck" at the "boot:" prompt

- This will walk you through testing all your CD's to ensure they aren't corrupt
