torrents really are the best way to go. I have never had any problems. they have some sort of checksum thing built in them. (At least that is from what I have heard) But to install from an image on the hard drive:

The CD image
The Image itself

I've been trying to install from a DVD image on my hard drive as described above and CANNOT get it to work. Every time I get as far as telling it where to find the DVD image, as soon as I hit <Enter> it dies with (I think) "Install exited abnormally [1/1]" followed by a number of other shutdown-type messages, after which it tells me I can now reboot my system.

FWIW, I also tried to install off of the 'net, and it told me that I had a problem with one of my devices; I think that it was that some one or another of my partitions ("swap", I think) didn't have a label. I found a reference to this in some of the installation instruction files, but I can't find out how to put a label on said partition -- frustrating, since up until now I've been running just fine without a label.

How do either of the last two posts actually relate to the thread (no, it's not on torrents generally it's on F7)?

If you have an installation issue Andy, start a new thread please.

Try and keep it on topic guys

Sorry, I'll do that. If you have any hints, though, I'd appreciate all the help I can get (in the new thread, of course...)
