Linux you torment me thus!
Dammit, Linux doesn't want to install. I get the following error:

Loading...isolinux: Diskerror 80, AX = 42DB, drive 9f
Boot Failed: Press a key to retry...

This stupid error occurs again and again. I looked online and it seems it could be that the cd didn't burn properly or my hd is messed (which I doubt because it runs other OS's just fine).

Any ideas??


Error while downloading and burning the ISO. Verify the MD5 checksums for the ISOs; if you are unlucky, you will need to redownload.

How do you verify on windows though? Do I need to write my own app to perform the MD5 Hash :-)

Cheers mate!

I use WinMD5 [http://www.blisstonia.com/shareware/WinMD5/]

NICE SOFWARE! Good find dude! I found out that the FC3-i386-disc11 and the rescue disc were bad so I downloaded it again but now when the program tries to do the SHA1 it responds with "Unknown". How can it be unknown?

No idea...? Mebbe you should try Ubuntu instead of FC. Promise you that the Ubuntu Experience will be far more pleasant compared to Red Hat's illegitimate child.
