Buy a SkipDoctor and see if it fixes your disc, or try removing install options so that it doesn't ask you for the second disc.

There is no system but GNU and Linux is one of its kernels.

I highly recommend creating a backup copy and/or image of the new disc, so that if it gets damaged beyond repair, you can burn a new one.

This happened to me once, just take the discs and give them an almighty clean, then wish for the best.
