Bug#195251: installation problem

Package:  boot-floppies
Version: 3.0r1

flavor: default
architecture: i386
model:  Compaq Presario 1655 laptop
scsi:  none
cd-rom:  ?
network card: N/A
pcmcia:  N/A

Problem with installation of a basic Debian system on the above laptop.
Have downloaded the "woody" ISO #1 two separate times using the jigdo
procedure, and burned two separate copies of that ISO CD.  Have also
obtained a burned copy of ISO #1 from a colleague, who downloaded the ISOs
himself using a simple HTTP: download procedure.

All three CDs boot into the installation procedure successfully.  I am
answering defaults for virtually all of the configuration questions asked by
the install wizard.  Installation appears to start successfully, and gets
well into the installation of packages from the CD.

However, all three copies of ISO #1 hit the same problem, installation
fails, and I have not yet discovered how to get around it.  The message
appears indicating that a particular .deb package is corrupt and couldn't be
"downloaded," namely /instmnt/pool/main/d/db3/libdb3_3.2.9-16_i386.deb

The fact that 3 separate ISO downloads generate the same error suggests a
problem with the ISO images?  Or is there something unique about my hardware
that hits this particular package?  My colleague, who burned me a copy of
his ISO #1, has used that image to successfully install on 3 separate

Any ideas?
