Note that it is probably a good idea, if you have two or more Optical Disks, to physically disconnect all but the one you use to install from.
Additionally, it is a very good idea to physically disconnect ALL USB devices except the keyboard and mouse.
The more "vanilla" your box is during installation, the more apt your install will be to be successful.
