install stops at: dia-0.19-3

Hello, I have been trying to install Fedora but seem to keep running into the same problem over and over again. I downloaded the disk images from Everything seems to go well until I get to disk 2 and it stops at: dia-0.19-3 with 8 minutes remaining. I tried burning new disks, I got the same result. I then went to a mirror site and downloaded another image (not from the original site) and then burned another disk. I got the same result. Exactly the same result each time! Does anyone have any suggestions? Help Please!

one bit of information....

The text box that comes up when the installation comes to a stop states:

"The package dia-091-3 cannot be opened. This is due to a missing file or perhaps a corrupt package. If you are installing from CD media this usually means the CD Media is corrupt, or the CD drive is unable to read the media."

I have replaced the CD Drive and the hard drive. No change. I get the same error.

I'm getting the same error here, though with a different package. It's the first package it tries to read off of Disc 3.

Rather annoying. I got past it by doing a bare bones install, and adding packages after the fact.

You are probably having problems with downloading the iso. try barebones install and after the installation you can select to install more packages. Also you could use apt to get dia via:
apt-get install dia

do this once you get your system running
