Using install-desktop

Thank you to all those who have responded to my earlier postings.
Install-desktop won't run from the CD, presumably because the
make executable bit is not set.

I copied the file to /etc and did chmod +x on it and then ran it.
Is this OK?  It seemed to run OK, although I'm getting the error
message I got with a previous damaged CD at a couple of points
during the installation, viz:

acd0: READ_BIG - MEDIUM ERROR asc = 1  ascq = 05  
error = 00.

Does that mean this CD is damaged too?

Thanks again,
