question about an install

i am trying to install slackware or debian on a toshiba pro satellite 440 cdt laptop with 16 megs of ram and a 1.34 gig hdd. when i try to install slack on it i get to where it is going to start installing then it throws an error >>>In interrupt - not syncing
I believe this is what the error is, i don't have the box near me now. i think something on the disk is messy. right before that it throws some errors in this format "co t9 8r o0 etc" i tried to do a "mke2fs /dev/hda2", it throws an error when i use the -j option., and it just sits there like it is creating it, but no sound comes from the device, so i am not sure what it is doing. with debian i get an error about not being able to copy a file off of the disk. i suppose something could be wrong with the cd rom, but the girl who i am installing it for, has installed diff progs from the cdrom. any ideas would be great.
