if hd is problem, try altering partition scheme

I think I have some bad sectors on my hd..but was able to install knoppix by increasing the size of the swap partition so that the bad sectors occur there. That way, during installation, packages installed to /root don't encounter the bad sectors.

It sounds like the media is corrupt, locate the disk that has that package on it, make a new copy of that disk and install again.
