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.

I selected "Install to the hard disk" and it started to load the installer, but the screen went blank and rebooted. In fact, it does this for any of the menu options. Anyone have any ideas as to what would cause this behavior and how to fix it? Alternatively, what other options do I have to load the installer? The BIOS supports booting from: HDD, FDD, CD, & Ethernet interface.

Looks like I spoke too soon. I did the md5 in a windows md5 generator which was giving incorrect results. Then, I booted into linux and ran the md5 and it matched the expected md5 checksum. Furthermore, I booted the CD (used originally) in my other (much newer) computer and the installer performed normally.
So, going back to my original question:
