So you would have to download the .jigdo and .template files manually
by wget or web browser. If you then run jigdo-lite in the directory
with the downloaded files and give it the URL of the .jigdo file again,
then you should get an ISO from jigdo-lite.

Did you check its MD5 or SHA512 ?

Please give the last messages of the failed attempt.
(If it gets to the initrd, then the boot loader worked and the Linux
 kernel was started.)

Is that error attributed to your CD or to your hard disk where you want
to install ?
If it is about the CD, try a DVD or an USB stick.

Have a nice day :)
