As far as I know installing Lenny with current images should work fine.

It sounds as if your local repository is invalid, incomplete or corrupt in

Can you send us the system log (/var/log/syslog) for the installation? 
Maybe we can get additional info from that.
Please make sure you gzip the syslog.
