First thing I would do is check the MD5 of your .iso file to make sure it is OK. I would also consider downloading again and re-burning the CD as slooooooooooow as you can bear. Sometimes burning an iso of a distro quickly can introduce errors. Try a 4x as a maximum.
less is more, but more more than more is, so more is less less, so use more less if you want less more, more or less.
