Linux on Laptop: Thinkpad keeps Rebooting During Install

I desperately want to install Linux on my laptop, but for reasons unknown to God himself, my Thinkpad model i-Series 1400 433MHZ 64RAM keeps rebooting during the installation. I cannot seem to complete the installation because during the install (copying files phase) my laptop keeps rebooting such that I cannot complete the install.

Always at the same point in the install, did the media
work for other machines?
