0. md5sum the iso' that you already used; if they are identical the iso is a perfect download !
1. The inbuilt CD test can fail on perfectly good CD's.
2. A decent test is to copy the the CD contents to the hard drive (using the same cd drive / pc; if this works without the CD needing to re-seek during the read, then the install will most likely work, even though the inbuilt test fails. 3. If you do a reasonably minimal install you wont need most of CD2+3 so even if there is disk errors, it might not cause trouble.
