Description of problem:
Yesterday at LinuxWorld Expo in San Francisco, I got a Fedora Core 4 install DVD from the Fedora booth.  But when I tried it today, I was disappointed to find that it always stops with FAIL in initial integrity check.  It looks like an official DVD, and I was speaking with an actual Fedora person working the booth when I picked it up from one foot away from him, so presumably the one I got really is the official version.

Hey Brent,

As we realized at LinuxWorld and were telling people, the place which did the
duplication messed up some how.  Rest assured the disc isn't bad though.  The
problem with the discs is that one package, anaconda-help, has a byte error. 
The way to get around this is to skip the media check on boot and then choose an
install class that does not include "Everything".  We personally tested the
Personal Desktop, Workstation and Server install classes and it worked fine. 
Furthermore, the problem is known only to occur on certain DVD drives.  Please
try the installation again and let us know if this solves the problem.

The broken package is not really of any use to you, unless you want to do a
respin of the distro, so don't think you're out any.  Please let me know if that
works, so that I can go ahead and close this bug.
