That would take a little bit of stress off the disks since it doesn't have to 
compile a kernel, but I'm still going to blame your hardware. The installer 
doesn't do anything that would make your filesystems suddenly turn read-only. 
Also, random failures (not reproducible) are almost always hardware related.

I've done probably 80+ installs with various versions of the installer using the 
same LiveCD on a few different boxes, and I have never had the problems you are 
describing.
