RedHat 5.0 Installation Error

I decided recently to go with the new RedHat 5.0
distribution.  I downloaded everything that I need from ftp.cdrom.com, or so I thought.  Made my disks, booted the system and so on and so forth.  After the point in the installation where it scans for install files on my harddrive I recieve the following message:

                Comps Error
    Package kernel at line 51 does not exist

I've been trying to find what that means but no luck.  The system seems to install fine, but when I get to installing LILO it pukes.  I think it may have something to do with the files associated with LILO.  I know I should just get a cd, but this is more interesting.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  If you know what I am missing or where I could start  to troubleshoot this message I would be grateful.

TIA
Shad

I am afraid that may mean that the file kernel-2.0.32-2.i386.rpm
happened to get corrupted in the download process.

I got a similar message about emacs when upgrading my system.
As I later found, a timeout occured during the download of the emacs package.

I have tried downloading all kernel files from another server.  Same problem.  Thanks for the thought however.  I think I just need to start over from a different server.
