installer fussy about CDs

Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone experienced a particular problem while installing 
deb particularly when it comes to accessing packages from a cd. Many 
times (I;ve been thru it at least 5 times) the installer would freeze after I put 
in a cd which turned out to have just smudge and sometimes just a few 
scratches on it.

This was particularly annoing because I had been thru a meticulous manual 
package selection twice before and then have all my effort come to nothing 
by having to restart the frozen machine. 

Anyone has any ideas ... it may be the DVD-rom drive in my beige g3... I'm 
all ears.
