Slackware rootdisk error


I've been trying to install slackware for the past few hours with no luck. I've downloaded and re-downloaded the files several times but no luck. Every time I get the same error, after when I am prompted to insert install.2 it says error then asks to retry or quit...it does this over and over again. I've tried 4-5 mirrors getting a new install.2, but none work and i've tried about double that many floppies. I've also tried downloading new images of all the other disks, but no luck. Any suggestions? bare.i and install.1 work by why can't i get past install.2?

It doesn't really give the error, just says error, then asks to retry the disk or quit.
