Suse 9 Install screwing up when installing packages.

I'm trying to install Suse 9 from cds and the install will always screw up at random times. It will always error and say it can't find a certain file to install (its different every time), but when I check the cd later in windows, the package is there. Whenever I press IGNORE it will crash and stall.

Just once the install got through the whole cd, but the weird part was, instead of going on to installing the files of 2nd cd it went to the next screen to install bootloader etc. then it crashed there.

I reburned, found new cd, and reburned. Nothing is working.

Clean your cd drive? Or get a new cd drive?
