Installing Damn Small Linux

I am trying to install Damn Small Linux on a PII Omnibook, but after I choose full install I just get the Penguin and a flashing curser. I cannot type where the curser is and it just goes no further. I have D/L the .iso from 2 mirrors and re burnt, but that is far as it will go.

Thank you.

Do you have a desktop that you can try it on to make sure your disks are good?
