md5 error installing kernel on iMac G5

Hello, I am trying to install Debian on my iMac G5 (rev a). Everything works ok until it tries to install the kernel. The installer gives an error that says no kernels are installable. I looked at the log that the installer pointed me to and it says that the kernel failed the md5 check. I ran the md5 check against the ISO I downloaded and it checks out. I re-downloaded the ISO from a different server and burned a fresh DVD and got the same results. I am using OS X's disk utility. I have other ISO's on the same computer and they all have worked fine. I also let the installer setup the partitions.
