installation problem


I am having troubles installing debian. I am using Woody release 2 on
i386 hardware, and each time the installer stops either with 'return
value 127' or 'return value 1'.

/target/var/log/debootstrap.log reads:

ln: /target/usr/bin/awk: File exits
umount: /target/dev/pts Invalid argument
umount: /target/dev/shm Invalid argument
umount: /target/proc/bus/sub Invalid argument

In previous attempts, i have seen lines referring to lilo.

Can anyone tell me what is going wrong? 

I have downloaded the iso using jigdo-lite and have also manually 
verified that the ms5 sum for the whole iso is correct. Funny detail 
is that when i do the media check, the cd fails.  Is this an indication 
that my cdrom drive may be wrong? I did not see any DriveSeek errors, 
so i do not understand why it would fail the media check after i have 
made sure that the md5sum from the iso matched the one from debian's

Any pointers are welcome.
