Debian on my Laptop.

Hello everyone. I'm expanding my quest to become Windoze free and I need help installing Debian on a Toshiba Satellite 2100CDS. I downloaded the full install iso, CD #1. The first download failed the MD5 checksum, so I downloaded again. The second download passed. I burnt the image, and proceeded to try to install on my laptop. When it starts, it gives me the "Press F1 for help or ENTER to boot:" statement. If I press F1 and type linux26 for the 2.6 kernel, it gives me the following error:

isolinux: Disk error 20, AX = 4235, drive 82

If I just hit enter, it allows me to choose a language, country or region, and a keymap, and proceeds to detect hardware. At the 2% stage, it stalls while trying to load" module 'yenta_socket" for "Toshiba America Info Systems ToPIC97'".

The laptop currently has Windows 98 successfully running on it, so I believe the drive is OK. Any help is greatly appreciated.
