Another thing you can do - burn the boot.iso (in the images directory) 
and boot off that - mount the DVD (mount the image or physical disk) and 
make it available via web server on another box. http installs seem to 
recover much better from a download error than off of DVD media when the 
drive mis-reads.

I always do http installs now - nothing more frustrating than having an 
install fail because an rpm file was mis-read due to a piece of dust on 
the drive lens and Anaconda can't figure out to try and re-read it.
