here are the things we need to help you

what version of Sabayon are you using? 5.2K 5.2G 5.2core.
what hardware have you got?
did you burn at the slowest speed?
do you have problematic hardware that needs a cheat code?

with these answers someone can help you but if you provide no information then how can anyone possibly help.

and if you don't know how to answer these questions, have no fear just ask and someone will be by to help soon while you wait have a look at the beginners forum specifically the' resources for you' thread.

Sorry for don't give info >_<

Uhmm...

The Sabayon's version... I'm not sure... There was a,,, Kinda festival of free software in the school, and I got the software there... I don't know if there is some way to know...

My hardware...
Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200
Motherboard: Intel Corporation DG35EC
HDD: 500 gb IDE/ATA
RAM: 4 gb
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT (1024 MB)

The burn speed... I really don't know...
In 10 minutes it ended... =/

And nop, don't have problematic hardware

Thanks a lot for your help =3

Most likely the disc is faulty, why not just download the latest version branch 5 from
http://www.sabayon.org/download
Your hardware is a 64bit so you can get either the amd64_G or amd64_K image (G = Gnome K = KDE)

Also have a read of the links in the Sections of Sabayon Linux Wiki
http://wiki.sabayon.org/index.php?title=Main_Page
Desktop ASUS M2N-MX SE Plus, AMD 64 X2 Dual Core 5200, 4 Gb RAM, GeForce 9500 1GB
Notebook HP CQ61-311AX, AMD CPU M320, 4 Gb RAM, Radeon HD 4300 512 MB
Wireless AR9285, Audio ATI SBx00 (IDT 92hd75B2x5)

Sorry for that, it says ISOLINUX 2.04 2003-04-16 Copyright (C) 1994-2008 H. Peter Anvin
But i didn't copy it the first time... And... It's not 64 bits o.o
Well... I'm pretty sure it isn't
xD

By the way... There are some versions to download... What's the difference between them?

Thanks for the answer... I really didn't want to download it XD
I will take some time

Did you try ever to boot any other LiveDVD from your DVD drive? If so, try burning on 4x speed. Or install Unetbooting and make LiveUSB. I myself installed Sabayon for the first time, from a HDD partition - no DVD or USB needed, but you need a linux.

The only other LiveCD I used was... Puppy Linux... I used it once... Because the Windows SO was corrupt and I use Puppy to save my files...
And I have no problems running that one =/

And why burning speed 4x?
o.o

Other speed can cause this?

Did you do a google search for isolinux: Disk Error 01, AX = 4200, drive FE
