Debian Linux ISO Image 1 - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

After purchasing a complete CD-set of debian 3.0rev1, the installation fails due to the following: File:/instmnt/pool/main/i/iptables/iptables_1.2.6a-5_i386.deb" was corrupted. Could not download iptables". It fails to go any further. I've downloaded the ISO image for disk 1 from the debian-mirror (Georgia Tech), checked it with MD5, and checked it against my copy from the original set. They both are identical. I'm trying to figure out what is going on here - me, machine, or bug? Any suggestion would be appreciated. (I also downloaded 'SlackWare', and it runs on this machine without any problems; so, I'm discounting any machine specific problems here)....

    I have had the same problem with a different distro and package,
    so I burned a new disc at a slower speed and didn't have that
    problem when I tried the install again. I don't know why because
    I used the exact same ISO image to burn both disc's so in my case
    it seems it was a problem with the speed of the burn.

    YMMV though.

    If you can't get it to work, it's easy enough to download the five (roughly)
    floppy disk images needed to do a network install. I've installed two
    machines over a LAN with Internet connection and it worked perfectly both
    times. It did take the better part of a day, but I didn't make any coasters
    either.
