Installation Problems RH 8.0

Here goes another journey. Currently running XP and intend on installing RH 8, MySQL, and PHP another HD. I purchased a device "Nylock Switch" which is a hard-drive selector that "sets" the "boot HD" to one or ther other HD's. I guess I could have done the "dual boot" gig but this seems simpler "I think".
I'll try to make a long story short.

Before actually installing the "Nylock Switch" I thought I would go ahead and load RH 8 on the new HD first. This I thought could be accomplished by removing the old hard-drive, inserting the new one and then booting off the RH 8 CD. When RH 8 booted I used the graphical interface to proceed. It appears to be loading but it gets to this point and stops but continues to repeat the error:

hdb: lost interrupt

Any ideas would be appreciated.

First make sure you have the cd burned correctly. If possible, try to install on another machine (may be with the same disk).
