Maybe you misburned the CD.

Why don't you try Fedora Core?
Comment 2 Brent Fox 2004-04-16 16:25:11 EDT
Sounds like an error occurred while burning the cd.  This is not an
installer bug.
Comment 3 Stephen Vance 2004-04-16 23:37:11 EDT
I verified the MD5 sums of the ISO against the docs on the site.  I 
reburned the disc multiple times on two different machines using two 
different sets of burning software.  Each time I got the same 
results.  I didn't use Fedora Core, but I don't have a Linux box with 
a burner in it.
Comment 4 Stephen Vance 2004-04-16 23:48:15 EDT
Sorry.  I didn't realize Fedora Core was the new distro until I read 
my Under the Brim after making the comment.  I'll try it.
Comment 5 Leonard den Ottolander 2004-04-17 07:23:49 EDT
Did you check the ISO checksum *after* burning the CD as well?:

$ mount /mnt/cdrom
$ df | grep /mnt/cdrom
$ umount /mnt/cdrom

Use the number of 1K blocks in the following command:

$ dd if=/dev/cdrom bs=1k count=<num 1K blocks> | md5sum

Maybe you burnt the ISO as a file instead of an image? If you look at
it in a file manager do you see one big file?

I really wouldn't know why after this image has been available for
months it's checksum would suddenly be corrupted now you use it...
Otoh I never let the installer checksum the CDs. Still I find it very
unlikely that such an issue wouldn't have been noticed before.
