I have downloaded version 6.1 multiple times from different sites, used MD5 to ensure the ISO's were good but I cannot get the OS installed.  I have wiped the entire drive with Linux, BartPE, and FreeBSD in a effort to completed the install but no luck.

Everything goes smoothly until the installer start to copy information from the CD and that's when I recieve.

"Unable to transfer the base distribution from acd0"

I have also tried this on two other computers DELL and HP with the same issue.  I can load Windows XP and Fedora Core 5 with no problems.
