I've downloaded FC6 in form FC-6-i386-disc[1-5].iso from hea site
run sha1sum -c SHA1SUM.htm (all 5 iso's passed)
and burned to 5 cd's.
I have a brand new unused Dell Optiplex GX620.
Set it to boot from cdrom first,
booted from first CDROM fine.
ran the media check - failed.
Reburnt cdrom - again booted fine but failed media check.
Got a friend to download the dvd iso from esat site, he burned a dvd on
Again booted fine then failed.
The dvd/cd drive on new pc is Optiarc DVD+/- RW ND-3570A
Obviously I'll try to install onto a different pc - if media check ok do
I conclude that I have a dud dvd/cd drive?
Or is there a work-around?
Or should I ignore the media check failure???
Thanks for any tips - (Googling didnt turn anything up for me)
