    Are you sure the burn went well?
    Have you checked the dvd's md5 sum?

    The Burn went well

    Yes, the burn went well. the first batch of ten cds I ordered from Bugdet LInux site. Second one, which is a 64-bit version, from Mandrakelinux official site itself. And the third dvd is from Linux magazine itself. How am I supposed to do md5 via winXP, which I am using now?
