The md5 checksum on redhat's website doesn't match the 4 files I downloaded!

Being adventurous I burnt them onto CD anyway. Tried installing, when prompted an error during installation, I press continued(if I could) but when installing Glibc2.3.3......., the only option is to reboot!!! It says error in media or hardware!

What should I do?

I too faced similar problems.I tried to install Fedora from burned CDs approximately 15 times but everytime it used to give different types of error.Fianlly got success when I used CDs gotten from one magazine.Try installing on another PC,if it doesn't work ,CD is problem.
As far as possbile ,try Mandrake 9/10,it allows you proceed even if you get error duing installation.

Actually I tried Mandrake10.0 before going to Fedora, but in Mandrake I couldn't even surf internet. I tried calling Konqueror but no response! Can't use KDE or Gnome either. Each time I tried to log on, it process the logon half way and brings me back to the log on page again!

I ignore lots of error message, took note of them:

There is an error installing packages-

libtk+1.2-1.2.10-38mk5.i586
ghostscript-fonts-8.11-1mdk.i586
libkdebase4-3.2-70mdk.i586
mandrake-galaxy-10.0-11mdk.i586
Openoffice.org_help_en-1.1-11mdk.i586
Openoffice.org-1.1-11mdk.i586
printer-filters-1.0-131mdk.i586
emacs-x11-21.3-9mdk.i586

I download fedora disc4 again and the checksum match, maybe bcoz the filesize is small... gonna redownload disc1 now.
