Is it telling you that it can't read from the cd? What's the actual error you get?
I've installed RH9 twice; both times I had to run a check on all 3 discs, else RH would tell me it couldn't find a certain file. When I let it check the discs before installing, it installed fine.

Did you verify the md5 sums after the download?

Also try runnign a media check before the install - run "linux mediacheck" at the "boot:" prompt.
