    Angry install error, any workarounds?

    while installing Ubuntu 8.04 on my eee pc G4 ( non-surf) i kept getting an error #5 ( I/O error) and said it was either a cd/dvd or HD failure. Since i was installing from a live USB key and the eee does not have a HD, it must be the SSD failing. but since i had the previous ubuntu install ( 7.10) work perfectly until i modified the partitions in this ( 8.04) install, it can't be too serious.
    - SO, is there any way to check the SSD for bit rot ? . and any way to skip those parts in the install
    - OR any way to suppress the error from quitting the installation?
    thanks ahead of time
