Hello tasfield - Welcome to the forum!
Since the sun is presently high overhead on this side of the planet and we are wide awake here - let me jump in with a few suggestions!
When trying to load the CD it partialy completes the installation and then stops with the following message
Error: No suitable media for the live CD content found.
I'm guessing you are booting a LiveCD session (not actually installing it just yet?)
At the boot menu - try> press F3
> type in cheat code> edd=off
and press enter
see how you go....there are a few other cheat codes mentioned on the forum if you search...else just ask
