I experienced the same problem on a beat up workstation; plenty of room on
20 gig HD, large partitions, etc. Had RH 9 on the machine previously, but
had noted odd messages relating to the i/o for the CD drive in
/var/log/messages prior to blowing it away. The install error message said
'It's likely there's not enough room to complete image transfer...', but
was thoughtfully vague.

Installing a new CD drive fixed it.
