I can't say why that happened, but there are many installation methods.
Try a different one. I usually use HTTP or FTP, but HD and NFS from a
raw iso DVD work fine too. There's usually no need to burn any DVD or
CDs to install on a non-virgin system. I put the installation kernel and
initrd in my /boot somewhere, set a stanza to find them in Grub's
menu.lst, and start installation from HD boot.
