RE: booting install cd
Do you have an old machine? It's bios may not support ISOLINUX. See the
install/README.sbm file on the CD for more info and handling.
I've always just booted from a windows floppy and ran install/boot.bat when
I have this issue. Unfortunately, we have a lot of oooold hardware at work
so I run into it a lot.

Sounds like your disk is bad. Check the md5sum of the image.
wrong, you'll need to download the image again. If that's
right, you may
have just gotten a bad burn. Try burning another CD.
If all else fails, the Debian homepage has links where you can
buy CD images
for basically the cost of the media (and shipping).
