Unhappy Mandrake 8.1 installation problems

Hi all again, new problem

I am having problems installing Mandrake 8.1, during the install, i get 3/4 of the way through installing the packages when it ask me for disk 2, so i oblige it and put disk 2 in and press ok, then couple of seconds later a message comes up saying an error has ocurred installing a package do i want to continue, so i said yes. This happened a couple of times during the install, now when i got to the end of the installation, the screen froze, so i pressed
a couple of buttons in frustration and all of sudden it ejected the cd and rebooted.
Now I know some of these packages are not important, but should these things happen? No

Now i did a md5sum on all of the disk and they they were fine.

Has anyone else had the same problem

Also has anyone got their Acatel USB Speedtouch to work yet?if so please help me
can't seem to connect to my ISP(BTOpenworld)

Did you install from a commercial distro or did you burn the iso downloads to CDs? If the latter is the case, you may want to try reburning CD #2, I ran into a similar problem and reburning the CD fixed it, even though md5sums checked out.
