Mac OS X Installation from disk freezing, pls help!

Until a few days ago I was running Tiger on my iBook G4 800mhz, but after having some problems when it would not boot I decided to go for a clean install - and only had orig Panther disks to hand.
I ran Hardware test first and there was an error msg coming up for the hard drive (25TF/8/3: ATA-100 ata -6- Master). It booted fine from the Panther disk and in Disk Utility I tried to repair disks - when it said they were not repairable I erased them and tried to continue by reinstalling Panther. Now it is just getting stuck at the "reading packages" stage in the installer and I don't know what to do! The machine has 640MB of RAM so that shouldn't be the problem.
I'm gutted as I just had to ditch my old G3 after it died very suddenly. Is it me?! Any help gratefully received.
