Geoff where did you get this information? I'd be interesting in reading it.
Typically, these issues are:
1) cheap/low quality media,
2) burning at 48X and hoping that old 4x IDE cdrom will read the disk
while trying to install.
As a test, turn around and mount mount the CD on the machine that burned
the disk and try doing a "cp -a" off the cd to your hard disk.
A better option, particularly if you have enough machines is to setup a
machine as a install server. Over the lan it's much faster than CD (for
me any YMMV). This box can also be turned into a local repository for
yum updates. It's also much faster doing an upgrade off a local box. :)
