Hi idiot,

When are you receiving this message? Did you install it already or does the DVD refuse to boot?

Sounds like it could be a corrupt DVD. Did you verify the MD5 sum of the ISO? Also, I find it helpful to burn at the slowest speed possible.

Sounds like a bad burn or image transfer, as btmiller suggested you should go back to where you got the image and get a MD5 checksum performed against it, if it passes fine then burn a new disc.
