You might have a bad .iso image of the CD. If that's the case, you just need to either re-burn the image at a much slower speed or download the image again from a different source. I have had troubles with installing Fedora in the past. Almost all of my troubles were with the installation CDs. I just went to a different distro, but that doesn't solve YOUR problem. Give that a shot and see what happens.

To find whether the problem is in the ISO or just in the burning, compute the md5sum of the ISO (can take a few minutes) and compare it with the published sum.
