DVD used: TDK DVD+RW DVD Recorder: NEC ND-2510A with firmware 2.18. I faced similar problems when I tried to install CentOS 5.1/Scientific Linux 5.1 x86 from their DVDs in my natural machine (the firmware was 2.18 and it has been a stable one which I have been using for a long time, it is the original stock firmware, not some hacked one)/ CentOS 5.0 x86 and Scientific Linux 5.0 x86 DVDs were installing OK. Now I am using the CentOS 5.1 x86 DVD image directly under VMware to perform the installation and will report in another message what will happen.
