Fedora Core: Install Error

Hello, I am tired of running Windows server so I am trying to switch over to Linux. I have a dedicated box sitting in my closet for this. Here's my problem...

I put in Disc 1 and boot into the Install. Choose webserver and then I go through and uncheck things like Firefox since I want to learn how to install them myself and have the latest versions. It continues the install, saying it will require discs 1, 2 and 3. Then it asks for disc 2 and copys the files needed. Once it asks to insert disc 3, it prompts the error Unable to access the CDROM. Now I got these cds from work which we have used all 4 (Full Install). But I figured cds can get scratched and went off and downloaded Disc 3 again. After burning it, it couldn't read it either. I canceled the install and restarted it, same error.

Anyone have any suggestions? I am really trying to switch over my main box to Linux if I can get it put on and learn it.

Also I am not sure if this should be in the General section or the Newbie.

Newbie section. Did you try running the media check on the Cds when installing?

Try this. If all goes well, then this is out ouf my knowledge (what would CD3 be different).

Or consider some other version or distro (I know this is not what you might prefer, but please consider it.)

Until then...
