This isn't really a direct answer, but does the system have net
access?  If it does, perhaps you could install the rest from a mirror?

As for the CD-rom problem, maybe it's a buggy SCSI driver.  Which
kernel are you using?  If it's old, try installing a newer kernel
before continuing the installation.
