    basically read the post,might sound like my pc's fault tho!oh and im blathering on!


    basically from downloading the dvd red hat fedora core i had problems,
    the download starting going backwards???????????




    which ended up sayng done! so i burnt the dvd

    then i put it in and installed it then when i restarted and changed the bios settings i had an error saying "bad operating system" and would not boot

    im glad i did a blog on a piece on paper which i scanned in for you all to see

    my main guess for the problem is a dodgy install

    anyway heres the page:


    PLEASE HELP
    (not needed that soon though as i have lots of time-i got study leave!!)

    First thing one does when downloading an ISO image is to check the md5sum to ensure the downloaded file is good. Did you do this?

    Download the ISO and md5sum file.

    Run the software from the link I provided to check the md5sum.

    Then take the ISO image and burn the data to a CD.

    The md5sum file is a text file. Right click on it and save to disk.

    Once you download the ISO file, run the checksum against it. It must match the string located in the md5sum text file. If they match, the ISO is good. If it doesn't match, download the ISO file again and recheck.

    not a very nice thing when the file is 2.4gb on a 512 connection that takes like 14hours to d/load!
