Md5sum is OK when testing.

What to do?

Actual Results:  had to power off system and start over.

Expected Results:  It would have been nice to have a Skip button and 
a list of failed rpm's after startup.

If the media check fails, then your install is going to fail.  There's
nothing that can really be done about it (having a skip button isn't
really feasible due to dependencies -- what if, eg, glibc failed?)

Try burning your media at a lower speed and/or different media.
