    Did you check the md5sum of the download to check if it was corrupt or not? if not, do so.

    Are you sure your BIOS is set to boot from CD before the hard drive?
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    Find a download mirror with a md5sum file for your download and then compair it with the md5sum you get for your download.
