If you are getting the same error as in the post you linked to, you need to skip the disk check. The check will not succeed because the disk is missing several things (fonts, printer drivers, X11, etc) to make it fit onto a 4.7gb single layer DVD.

Try to do only 1 partition on your HD for now, you can always resized/repartition for other os later. Look for dual boot if you are interested.


Looking at the problem page, it said that the problem (from previous post) in writing to /Volumes/Shared folder, wth? was that your problem?
