Sounds like you could have a bad cd.  Did you check the md5sums of the ISOs
before you burned them?
Comment 2 Richard Cottle 2001-05-21 11:01:14 EDT
ahem....  I was in too great a hurry to get it....
I will reburn and check md5sums.  Since my RH7.0 install is down, because of 
a new Matrox G450, Can I check md5sums from W2k? , how? (a pointer will do.)

A few of our users have reported good results with md5sumer.  It works on
Windows 95/98/NT/2000 and can be found at:

It is freeware, so give it a try and see if your md5sums are good.
Comment 4 Richard Cottle 2001-05-22 10:51:54 EDT
Md5summer reported that the md5 summs were wrong, so I reloaded last night...
too tired to re-burn last night so I will try that tonight....

Thanks for the help....

I think that we can close this now as a 'due'  - 'dumb user error' ;-)

Thanks again,
Comment 5 Richard Cottle 2001-05-22 10:52:59 EDT
p.s.  neglected to state that the md5s are ok now...
Comment 6 Brent Fox 2001-05-22 16:16:54 EDT
It's ok.  We get *tons* of bugs that turn out to be bad downloads.  Thanks for
working with us.
Comment 7 Justin Rossetti 2005-04-28 23:56:14 EDT
I get this same error using the DVD-ROM that came with "Linux for Dummies".  
There's no way to check the md5sums, is there?  This DVD-ROM has the option to
boot into Knoppix or run the FC3 install.  What can I do?
