If you downloaded the ubuntu live cd iso did you check that the md5sum (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM) matched? Another thing to do is to check the cd for defects (option 5 I think) If they all pass then you could try installing with the alternate cd (http://releases.ubuntu.com/8.04.1/)which has worked for some who have had this problem.
