Yes.  The problem you are having seems to be either with (a) the process of burning (bad CD-RW drive, bad media, etc.) or (b) reading the CDs.  Considering you had issues just reading the ISO file on a second machine I would guess (a).

Your best bet would be to use "rpm -K".  It's not going to help you with the installer, though.
