I had the same problem on my FC3 disks. But during a long google session that lead down a dirt road and an abondoned farm, I found this...

When booting the CD, at the the prompt, type "linux mediacheck ide=nodma". This has always results in a succesful check for me. But remember, I've only used it on FC3 disks.

This is a well-known kernel problem of long standing.
Any time use of a CDROM drive is flakey, try turning
off DMA.

You have found the bank of Larn.
I can explain it for you, but I can't understand it for you.
I speak only for myself, and I am unanimous in that!
