OK, it probably isn't the drive, but if you want to avoid
the drive entirely, you can mount the iso image file and
extract the isolinux/vmlinuz and isolinux/initrd.img files,
stash them in the /boot directory of your existing linux
and make a grub entry pointing to them, you can then boot into
the installer directly without needing a dvd or cd at all
(I've been doing this a lot on machines at work so I don't
have to crawl under desks to get to the dvd drive :-).

Of course, if there really is no drive problem, none of this
will do any good :-(.
