LiveCD Won't Boot


This is the third time I've burned the 6.2-3 LiveCD. First time I figured I would just clear the disk and try again. Second attempt didn't work either. On the third attempt I tried a different disk, still doesn't work. On each attempt I got this error when I attempt to boot from the LiveCD:

I just redownloaded it. This time I checked the checksum in K3b, it validated... I burned it in K3b to a CD-RW at 4x speed. When it completed I rebooted and got a similar error:

also....download from a different site and maybe try using another rom drive to burn with or just another computer and set your burn speed alittle slower too.
