No need to download everything again. Take a few minutes to learn
how to use rsync, pick an rsync server from the Fedora list of mirrors,
then "fix" your downloaded file with rsync.

As above, did you ask k3b to verify the burnt DVD?

In this case it is just a fonts package, but if a more important
package were corrupted, the installer should not let you create a
