Can't install: no installable kernel found

Hello! Just so you know I'm a

I'm trying to install Ubuntu which as I understand it is based on the new Sarge installer.

The disk(s) matched their md5 sums & the installer verified that the packages were good.

At about 81% of the "Installing the Ubuntu base system" phase I get this error:

No installable kernel found
No installable kernel was found in the defined APT sources.
The current default kernel package is 'kernel-image'.
You may try to continue though this strange error is probably fatal.
I saved the error reports to a floppy. From "messages":

Setting up base-config (2.44ubuntu23) ...

Err file: warty/main Packages
Read error - read (5 Input/output error)
Failed to fetch file:///cdrom/dists/warty/main/binary-i386/Packages.gz Read error - read (5 Input/output error)
Reading Package Lists...
E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
I'm really out of my element here!

Thanks, I'll try that.
Although I've never really used IRC I'll give it a shot. I did post to the mailing list, but received no response.
