Check the md5sums of the cd contents and see if they match up. There are a few utilities out there for windows.
And if you still have those iso's of the CD's check their md5sum too.
md5sum of the cd will be available from any mirror of suse.
For more just google up. And wikipedia can also help if you don't know about md5sum

Well, I'll try out the install from the hard disk with the help of a tut someone wrote here. Thanks everyone!!

Now open up a command console by typing "cmd" into the run menu. (You can go to Start-->Run).
Before you start running the commands, make sure that the prompt says
