will not install os 10. 5 completly

It will get pass formating the hard drive but once I start the install there's a message comes up and says " Install Failed, The installer could not validate the contents of the 'BaseSystem' package. Contact the software manufacturer for assistance. So what do I do also the OS X 10.5 was a copy not the original disc?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

It sounds like you got a copy of a 10.5 update disk instead of the full install disk. Try installing 10.4 first.
