Burn a new CD at 4x or less after doing md5sum on the iso. Don't use CD-RW.Try again
If not; use the Alternate CD. Clean the lens in your burner too.

Have you tried it again? This happened to me when I tried to install ubuntu 7 on an old machine. I wiped the disc with a microfiber cloth, reinsterted, and ping!
