Angry RH 8.0 Crazy Installation

I am not really a linux newbie, but I am having problems with the RH8.0 Installer. I have tried it about 10 different times and ways.

I always get to the point right after it formats the partitions and then I get this error

"An error occurred transferring the install image to your hard drive. You are probably out of disk space."

I know I am not out of disk space. I have a 20 gig and 6 gig drive in there. They are both completely empty. At first I thought I was doing something wrong with the LVM because this is the first time Ihave tried to use it on a linux machine, but I read the RH howto on LVM and then I even decided to drop LVM just to see what would happen. Same error. It ticking me off. Then I thought that maybe I wasn't giving /boot enough space, so I have tried it from 80 megs to 500 megs and no dice. I have tried seperate partitions for each /. /tmp, /home, /usr, /var etc and all under just / and /home.

I check my isos with the md5 sum and they look good. I am at a loss. Any clue?

My last ditch effort will be the other cdrom drive in the box, but I doubt that has much to do with it.

I found the problem. It was weird. I checked the cd friday night and it was fine. I checked it again today and it was bad. I burned the ISO again and it went in just fine.
