    fc3 install issue


    Well I was going to install Mandrake 10.1, but bailed out last minute. Instead, I will be installing FC3. I downloaded the 4 CD's. The checksums were correct, however, when installing it said there was something wrong with my media content. So I am hoping someone can help me resolve this issua, because I don't want those 4 CD's to go to waste.

    That's a known bug.
    If the md5sums are correct, just ignore it

    Also if you don't ask the installer to check the CDs?

    I don't get what you mean. I think I should rephrase what happens. I used the graphical installer. I skip checking the media on the CD's. I go through the install options. When Fedora starts is about to start installing, a message window pops up saying something is wrong with my media content and its going to abort. There is only one button in the window and its says "ok". After I click it, my CPU restarts.(I've done the media check and its said all my CD's failed, but the checksums are right) To be more specific the error/window says something like this "error installing glibc-common-2.3.3-74, this is a fatal error and the installation will abort after you click ok"Note: Not exact words.
