Install Problem

 I'm trying to install the i386 version of Debian which I downloaded at linuxiso.org.  I downloaded all 7 discs, and booted up the computer I'm working on with the first disc.  The boot screen came up, so I hit <ENTER>.  It went through some detecting and other processes, then ended in:
Freeing unused kernel memory: 72k freed
Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 00000000
current->tss.cr3 = 00101000, %cr3 = 00101000
*pde = 00000000
Oops: 0002
CPU: 0
EIP: 0010: [<c412800e>]
EFLAGS: 00010292
eax: 00000000    ebx: 00000000    ecx: cf450000    edx: 00000000
esi: cf451020    edi: cf455b90    ebp: cf453160    esp: cffdbf70
ds: 0018    es: 0018    ss: 0018
Process swapper (pid: 1, process nr: 1, stackpage = cffdb000)
Stack: [a bunch of hexadecimal sets here, I can get them if it's important to solving my problem]
Call Trace: [more hexadecimal, see above]
Code: 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
I also got an error in about the same place that said:
Kernel panic: init not found, please supply init= option
But I haven't been getting that error any more for some reason, just the null pointer one.  I'm trying to get some sort of Linux on my computer so I can get away from Windows, but after trying to install RedHat 1000 times and failing, I thought I'd try a different flavor of Linux. 
System Specs:
333 MHz AMD Processor
6 GB hard drive
32x CD-ROM drive
32 MB video card
If you need any more information to figure out what's wrong, let me know and I can try and get it.  Any help towards what might be wrong would be appreciated!
Thank you,
