    Maybe the burn to disk was bad and not the ISO file that you downloaded. Just guessing, though.

    yup, I don't think there was anyting wrong with the iso, until it got to my machine, it was late and i was sleepy, but I sure don't want to wait another 3 hours just to figure out what happened, I tried limewire and it went bonkers with error messages also...b.t.w download was done on a vista machine, as my linux box doesn't have a burner...ironically, mint was going to replace vista on my last non-linux computer...maybe vista is putting up a fight in it's deth throws
