Burned ISO to DVD at 4x

I booted off the CD. Pressed F8.

Typed -v
Loads Darwin/x86...
i see that it fails a ton of stuff...

then loads Installation GUI
"Select a Destination" is all blank and not showing my partitions that I made.
I click on "Utilities" at the top
clicked on "Disk Utility"
I can see the two HD's and their partitions there.
I can select the partition and erase it.. if i do that, what volume format should i use?
- mac OS Extended (Journaled)
- Mac OS Extended
- Max OS Extended (Case-sensitive, Hournaled)
- Max OS Extended (Case-sensitive)

I tried to mount any of the partitions and it failed.

any help?
Is there another ISO i should try?
What commands can i run so the OSX installation will see my partitions?
