  i'd thought of that, but that wouldn't explain why those drives
would be so *particular* -- happily installing off of the x86_64 DVD
but not the i386 one.  and i verified the correctness of those DVDs.
and it was always the i386 DVDs that were ignored, not the x86_64.
that doesn't strike me as drives slowly going bad.  there's way too
much of a pattern there.
