redhat 9 installation fails at CD # 3

Installing redhat 9 have done mediacheck on the 3 installations cd, all pass. CD 1 & 2 work fine but 20 seconds into CD # 3 - I get a fatal error dialog box that says kdebase-3.1-12 is the cause and the installation is aborted??? I chose KDE and not Gnome about 2508 M in all on the Server installation option. I have tried 2 different sets of CD's; 1 set is a verified copy and the other is a new unopened boxed set from redhat.

What is the solution here to complete the initial installation??? Thank you.

I was going to tell you to clean the cd but I see that you have tried two different sets so maybe you have some dust in your cdrom. Don't Laugh its happened to me. Try blowing out the cd with a can of air.
Good Luck
Also You know that redhat is not going to support rh9 after April 30th 2004. You might want to download Fedora ( I think that's how you spell it ) from redhat. It's the new Linux version, everything rh9 has plus. Just an Idea.
