Installation fails on PPC G4 Mac mini...

Hey guys. I went out in search for DVD-R DL discs, but to no avail. I DID find DVD+R DL discs, which I prayed (and assumed) would work fine. I'm not sure if this is a reason for the following...

 

Archive and Install, and Upgrade I've tried so far on top of Tiger. All have resulted in a warning symbol while installing "Essentials" saying that there was an error installing to /Volumes/Macintosh HD. I'm actually re-installing Tiger with Archive and Install, so I hopefully will be able to salvage everything.

 

But what's going on? Why is this happening? I'm booting from my DVD+R DL, and am quite depressed at it all...

 

TIA, Brian.
