grep input/output error on slackware 10.1 install

Ok I'm doing a new install of Slackware 10.1 on a Sony Viao PCG-GRX600P, dual boot with winxp. I'm doing the install from CDs that were burned from the downloaded iso. I got through the harddrive partioning and set up, I created a partition for swap, / and /usr/local. I then choose the install everything option, and it installed the first few items just fine, however, when it goes into the ap package section everything comes up "grep (package name) input/output error. The one package that is on the screen now is /var/log/mount/slackware/ap/acct-6.3.2-i386-1.tgz

Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong? Any comments and/or links are greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

Ok, I ran the dmesg and got hdc: media error(bad sector). So yeah, anyone encounter this before? I'm going to try burning a new cd, but other than that I don't know what else it could be...
