problems installing fedora

I'm trying to install Fedora on my pc a
Duron 750
512 pc133 ram

It goes thru the install procedures and all that jazz, but as soon as it starts actually installing I get an error, I can't member exactly but it something like ' bad media, hardware or something error,, yadayada,, this is a serious and your installation has been aborted press any key to reboot' like I said it's not the exact error I'm getting but it's the best I can remember.. if you need the actual error I could get it later on tonite..
as far as the bad media error I can't see it cause the cheksums were correct before I burnt the iso, and the cd check part of the install passed,

any ideas what could be going on?
any ideas how to fix this?

anything would help

what I ended up doing was burning new images on different medium and all is ok now. funny.. I used the exact same iso's but a different brand disc and everything went peachy, just have to learn it now..

doing a complete media check sure helps to prevent these errors. that would elimanate atleast one unknown.
