There is probably a problem with either your installation CD or your Hard drive. I would bet on the hard drive though. Since you are re-installing... your probably had issues with your previous installation?
Is this a new hard drive? You should get your hands on a knoppix live cd and open the terminal and run these commands after connecting to the internet:
... wait for it to update
... follow the prompts to install it.
... if that doesnt work... try
This should give you a health status report on your hard drive. You can paste the report on here if you need help interpreting it.
