Fedora Core 3 Installion is frozen!

I just brunt my 4 Fedora Core 3 CDs, and plunked the first one into the drive. I went through all the pre-install stuff, but about 10% through the installtion, it freezes. The mouse and keyboard stop working, the CD drive spins down, and it just won't respond.

Any ideas?
I checked the CDs with the built-in media checker and they all passed.

Thanks in advance,

Try it on another PC with those same cd's and see if you have the same problem, because if you do your cd's are probably bad.

I did an MD5SUM (sp?) and it passed...I can't really test it out on this machine as I have all my important things on here (and backing it all up would take more CDs than I could buy ;-) )

It may have been the way I burned the ISOs... any hints on how to get the best writing? I bruned at 4x (slowest my drive could go) using Instant CD/DVD, which isn't the best program but it does ISOs and I had it.
