Installing CentOS, I get hung up at "package download"


I have tried to install CentOS about twenty times. Each time it hangs up at package download. I says that file rsh-o,17-40.e15.i386.rpm cannot be oppened Due to a missing file or corrupt package or corrept nedia.

That doesn't give much to go on--it still leaves out a lot from "what exactly . . . ."

Is the computer connected to an ethernet connection with access to the internet while you are doing the install? It sounds as if it's trying to download something and can't find it.
