my install problems are usually due to bad blocks on a disk or it seems maybe rawrite just screws up sometimes.  get out a new floppy and rawrite another image, would be the first thing I'd do.
This is a media (CRC) error.  It most often happens when you try to use "preformatted" floppy disks.  Format the floppy on the machine you want to use it on, and then use RAWRITE.EXE again.
