[opensuse] opensuse 11.1 ppc installation

I ran into this problem when trying install opensuse 11.1 ppc
to an IBM p-series 630 POWER 4 box from the DVD.

The yaboot "boot" prompt appeared fine and asked me to
choose from "install, ,,,, rescue". When I typed "install",
the machine ran for a minute or so and gave this error message :

Allocate 01400000 bytes for executable@03c00000
Read Failed : 00bfc000 / 0127a103

At first I thought it could be due to the tiny scratches on the DVD.
So I took another DVD, made sure there is no scratch, and burned the
iso image onto it. But using this DVD produced the same error

Before installation, I used SMS to set the install device to be
the DVD
(there is only one reader) and the boot sequence is : 1. DVD 2.
SCSI disk.

Thanks in advance for any help.
