Description of problem:
I downloaded the ISOs and the md5s check out.  I've burned them multiple times from different cd burners using various windows cd burning programs but when I boot the first disk and have it check the media it says it fails.  I also had this issue with FC3.  I've tried installing on different computers.  I read somewhere that doing "linux ide=nodma" would allow it to work but this didn't work for me.  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.burn the ISOS
2.boot them media check

Actual Results:  media check fails

Expected Results:  This is fucking ridiculous.  I know other people have been having this same problem judging from other bug reports and from googling.  but no solution.  I can't believe we pay for this shit.
