As a diagnostic, it might tell you something useful if you use dd to 
read the tar file from the CD back to your hard drive, then untar it 
from the file on the HD.  Something like

# dd if=/dev/acd0c of=file.tar.gz bs=2048

Assuming that doesn't return an EOF error, you should be able to unpack 
file.tar.gz.

If that works, it tells you something, but I'm not sure what.
