"It depends." Usually during a CDROM installation you can press ALT+CTRL+F[0-8] to view different consoles providing different information: installer output, syslog and gain access to a shell. Gathering information from those consoles may (or may not) provide information that can assist you in tracking down the cause. Without it all that remains is guesswork IMHO.
