There was a discussion of this on the fedora-test list a few months
back. I can't remember details, but it's possible that the CD will burn
correctly and still fail media check. Something about certain burners
in certain situations burning extra blank data to finish a track and
messing up the checksums.
I had the problem with one of the FC3 test ISOs, downloaded it twice,
and still got the same problem. I've installed (several times) with both
"bad" CDs and never had a problem.
This may not help you, but I thought it was worth mentioning.
