I verified my sha1sum from the site (the sha1sum information SHOULD be 
next to the download link) with the one calculated from my downloaded 
.iso and they match.
However, I followed your advice and didn't burn another disc.

Did a boot and install from LAN and everything went smoothly.


PS: when I ran yum update after install I received a conflict between 
syslog-ng and rsyslog: had to uninstall rsyslog or no update would be made.
