Sometimes CD's work better if you use a lower burn speed, but
if you can download the image files to an NFS-exported directory
you can boot the first CD with 'linux askmethod' at the
boot prompt, pick NFS as the install method and point it
to the server and directory.  Even if you don't have trouble
with the CDs it's much faster that way and you don't have
to swap any disks.
