FC4 SATA Installation Error with perl

I have a Dell Dimension 8400 (Pentium 4 HT 3.0 GHz) that I just got and I installed another SATA harddrive just for Linux. I was hoping to install a dual boot system with FC4 but I have had tremendous problems with the graphical FC4 installation.

Everytime Anaconda is actually installing the files, the installation freezes on perl-5.8.6-15 and says that there is a problem installing this and that the installing must abort. It says it could be a problem writing to the harddrive.

Should I try reburning the ISO image disk #1? Should I use the text installation? I am very frustrated and do not know how to proceed as I am a newbie to Linux. Any ideas would help. I have read the other threads but those do not have the same problems that I am having. Both harddrives are in NTFS32 format but I understood that FC4 installation would rewrite the designated areas in FAT32 during installation.
