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. :)
