i keep getting an error everytime i try to install leopard onto my white macbook.

Currently my macbook has nothing on it at all, completely wiped, no OS at all.

the error i keep getting is something along the lines of

"failed to verify the essentials package"

i read up and apparently this is a ram problem so..

First off i tried leopard with the default factory two 1gb sticks of ram.

I then tried changing the ram to a 1gb stick from another laptop with no problems.

i then tried changing to two 2gb sticks from a brand new laptop with no problems.

yet i still get teh same error.

lastly i tried downloading and installing Snow Leopard.

I now get thsi error,

reading from /System/Installation/Packages/BaseSystem.pkg: Input/output error
