Two things to try here straight away.
1/ In the command line type "md5sum foo/bar/kubuntu.iso"  (Where
Kubuntu.iso is the name of the iso file and foo/bar lead to where the
file is.)  This will give you the images number which you can check
against the one on-line to check that the image is good.
2/ Run check cd from the disc boot menu.  This will check your burn is

Failing that, try an alternative cd.  This give you a text based install
which should work regardless :)
