if you have a different disk, the first thing I would do is try to install it on that. It looks/sounds like your packages are trying to write to a bad sector on the drive or an improperly partitioned file system. What is your partitioning schema like? (i.e. /boot =?MB, root=?MB swap =?MB? Is it ext2 fs? or did you try ext3 or riserfs?
Personally I would bet the house on Hardware issues - leaning towards a bad physical disk - then perhaps a memory slot or IDE SCSI channel.
I know it sounds broad, but....
