It might be a case of old hardware.  Sometimes it's easy to forget that
there used to be CDROM drives out there that had trouble reading CD-RW's
and even CD-R disks.  If the drive in your ultra-60 is that old, then
you need to replace it with a newer one, or netboot the machine and do
the install that way.
