Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

The package may be corrupt, the installation media may be bad, or something else has caused the package to be unable to be read without error. You man hit enter to continue if you wish, but if this is an important required package then your installation may not work as-is.
I am going to continue installing, but I was wondering what this file is and if it is important.
Edit: Same thing happened again on disk 2 (installpkg error #2)
I'm sure you can install the package from the cd or a download of the package once you get installed. Reasons for this might be memory problems, CD Drive problems, or CD Media problems. Possibly the cd was burned bad at that part of the cd. at-spi is the "Early Access Release of the Gnome Accessibility Project's Assistive Technology Service Provider Interface". I don't think it's necessary but another program might need it from the gnome package.
That usuall happens when you make one of your partitions to small when you do your install. The installation needs to create alot of temporary files and whatnot in / and if its to small, the install chokes with those types of errors.
I got nailed a few times because I didnt make my root partition (/) large enough. I think somewhere around 300 - 400 mb for / will keep the partition from filling up during the install.
You may want to create around a 512mb partiton for /tmp because a long time ago I had that happen to me and I THOUGH it was because /tmp was to small.
anyway good luck, and make sure your cd is not scratched or your cdrom is not defective
actully im getting error #39 and im pretty sure im not running out of space since i gave the root partition 10 gigs. 10gigs = 10000 mb right? and im sure the cd is burnt right since the md5 checksums match
