checking for bad media

Had some problems tonight with the 20040913 installer on via epia
CL10000 hardware. Is there known issues? Everything would work fine
until a little way into the cpdup phase, exactly the same place each
time, cd read errors came up, on my old cdrom, a new 656MB one and a new
burn on a 700Mb capacity cdrom. So I think it's not the media, the drive
is pretty new but I haven't changed it out yet. Has this board been
causing problems?

An unrelated issue, I've got some apparently failed disks. Is there
something akin to linux badblocks on the installer disk which will do a
read write test on the drive? I seem to recall a post about that not too
long ago, but I can't find it...
