Red Hat 7.3 installation problem

Im installing RH73 from CD .. 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..?
please help...
