What I really meant was for you to do a full sha1sum on ALL of the ISOs
you used to burn the media and verify you get the correct signatures.
The idea was to ensure the ISOs were clean to start with.

Next, check the media you're using.  Make sure you get name-brand 700MB
media.  A lot of the "bargain" media absolutely won't hold 700MB.
CDs are written from the center out (like an old LP record, but in
reverse), so the edge of the media is the last bit to be used.  In
bargain media, the material is suspect and out at the edge (where the
rotational speed is greatest and flutter can be an issue), issues with
suspect material get MASSIVELY amplified.  I use TDK media almost
exclusively (this is NOT a commercial) and have have very few issues.

As another poster mentioned, you may take a look at the CDs themselves
on a machine that is running and go to the "/mountpoint/Fedora/RPMS"
directory on the CD.  Look for any RPMs that are 0 length.  You can
do that via "find . -size 0"
