Did you try running the sha1sum program? if not, open a terminal,
and (as root) cd to the file containing the .iso and the SHA1SUM file.
execute the command: sha1sum -C SHA1SUM.
After much churning you should get a return that DVD img is OK (and
a bunch of errors for the files you don't have in your download) if the
img fails, you must return to the BT (BTW did you use
system-config-securitylevel to open up port 6881? that might be your
problem with slow download speeds. You can check this with iptables -L).
As far as the disc you burned, did you use the media check option
(this is not really valuable as many people get failures, and can
install anyway, but you gotta check). Also Please look in the
filesystem (computer icon select DVD-rw) Do you see anything at all? The
proper DVD has 3 folders (Fedora, images, isolinux) and 14 files
including autorun, eula.txt, release-notes etc.
If the iso is good, perhaps something went wrong with the burn. Did
you ensure that the burn speed did not exceed the rating of the media?
(discs come in 1x-16x).
That's all I can think of ATM, hope it helps
