got given a disc this morning trying to install it, gets to 51% then i get something along the lines of

[Erro 5] Input/output error: '/rofs/user/sbin/vcstime'

tried to partition the drive and to format the whole thing - same story. just getting more and more partitions and no install.
it reckons it might be a bad disc?

Have you tried the "Check Disk for Errors" option?
If that returns a problem, you've got a bad disk. Post back after the test, please.

EDIT: This may take some time...

Yup! Follow the solution provided by the above post.. Check for errors..... Well, it looks like a bad disc to me... Download the ISO from another mirror and burn it in a slower speed....
