seek errors probably are not indicative of a good thing.

My guess is that whatever's wrong (scratched CD, flakey IDE controller, iffy RAM), your system is not getting properly installed.

I'd suggest popping a live CD (knoppix.org, etc) into your system and seeing if it boots up properly. What you've described "feels" like a hardware problem.
