Description of problem:
The DVD version of FC4 is downloaded and the sha1sum verifies a good copy.  
Upon burning the image on a DVD-R and two different DVD-RW the installer has  
trouble verifying the DVD media as good. The DVD-R was burned on a Windows  
machine, and the two DVD-RWs were attempted on a FC3 box and a Mac Tiger  
machine repeatedly. Results are consistent failures on the DVD-RW and  
occasional failures on the DVD-R. The DVD-R PASSed once, but the subsequent 
install failed. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Burn DVD   
2. Boot DVD 
3. Perform media check 

Actual Results:  media check failed or install failed to complete 

Expected Results:  install should complete normally  

Additional info:

Performing a Personal Desktop install worked, and then adding the packages 
from the DVD on the freshly installed system worked.

Can you check if you booting into the installer with ide=nodma option fixes this
issue as outlined in
