redhat Skipjack and redhat 7.2 problem

ello again I have been trying to get redhat re-installed after installing skipjack and it acting all sorts of weird but now when i try to install skipjack once again I get unable to read chkconfig error or something to that effect then when i give up and try to install 7.2 once again i get another error.....I have ran Drive Fitness Test thinking mah hard drive was bout to bite the dust but no bad sectors...then thinking it was the dvd-rom i switched the master and slave and now have a cd-rom to install from but no luck there either still the same probs...i am including the log from the errors I got installing 7.2 after skipjack flutzed up... I even tried re-downloading .ISO's and reburned about 4 times...forgive me for it is rather long

Traceback (innermost last):
File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 620, in ?, dispatch, configFileData)
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/", line 350, in run (self.runres, configFileData)

File "/usr/lib/anaconda/", line 161, in mergeFullHeaders
rpm.mergeHeaderListFromFD(self.hdlist, fd, 1000004)
rpm.error: match tag mismatch

Local variables in innermost frame:

Any help would be appreciated :-D

The re-downloading part may be unecessary if you check the "md5sum" .
