Have you seen if there is an option by which you boot into DOS and then go to a directory on the CD (DosUtils on my distrib) from where you can directly load a Linux bootkernel w/o making boot & root disks?  Try it.  

The error sounds like either your boot/root disks had a bad sector.  If you are unable to boot directly from the CDROM in DOS as explained above, make another boot/root disk set.  Scan the floppies for bad sectors first.
