I think the best sollution would be to offer CD (md5sum) check when user starts install to hard disk utility. For example when user press on "Install to hard disk" then such message could be displayed:

"Before installing it's recommended to check your CD/DVD drive and disk for errors. You can press "Cancel" here if you are sure, that your CD/DVD drive and disk are OK"
