    A quick and dirty solution is to download the netinstall CD again. Could be its not a good download. This has happened to me before.

    Also, when you download it, check to see if it's a good one. Some times, a download is corrupted.

    And while you're at it, use the Testing (Lenny) branch. It's stable enough to use.
