Red Hat 7.3 installation problem

Im installing RH73 from an FTP-server ( .. After the installation has benn going on for a while, I get this error:

There was an error installing kdelibs-3.0.0-10.
This can indicate media failiure, lack of disk space, and/or hardware problems.
This is a fatal error and your install will be aborted, Please verify your media and try your install again.

Press the OK button to reboot your system

I know I have more than enough disk space, and im pretty sure that there is nothing wrong with my hardware..

-what does media failiure mean...?
-any suggestions to how I can fix this..?

Might have been a network timeout. I'd say to get the iso's instead if you've got a cdrom drive and a burner. If not, try a better mirror, or if you are on dial up, maybe look into a cheap premade alternative. Check out where they offer the burned iso's at like 5 bux plus shipping.

In this case you are installing RD 7.3 in a network connection.

Is it always in the same file ? you when you try to re-install the RD it gives you another one ????

It means that you could have a failure in the souce files, or a connection problem !

A recomendaction is for you to try a inst by CD !!!! if you can ! Try do download the RD Iso files from ftp and make the cd's !

Best regards
