"[CRC is a]n abbreviation of cyclic redundancy check, a common technique for detecting data transmission errors. A number of file transfer protocols ... use CRC in addition to checksum." see
http://80211-planet.webopedia.com/TERM/C/CRC.html

A wild guess might be you burned your own disk and have a checksum error(?).

In future, make your posts a little more informative, including the post title. Try adding what your installing and the specs of your box.

bulliver, thanks for saying this, i was about to say exactly the same thing. as few 's never go amiss though. people like trying to be offended at harmless comments.

404, people trying to up hold the quality of posts is nothing to insult anyone over. And we'll be a whole lot politer in future as well please, For The Lord did say, "Do not yourself judge others, for you will be judged accordingly."? (well, personally i don't think he did, what with the atheism and all that, but it just reminded me of that bible reference...)

hey 404, my reasons for adding that are evident, and just good common sense if you follow that link in acid_kewpie's sig that says "how to ask good questions" and read it.

No I'm not a mod, but I was trying to help this guy get a better response. Better than say, your's. Not neccesarily for this post, but for any he might post in the future. You're not a mod either, but you seem to have no qualms about flaming people about the content of their posts.

Don't worry about 404's responses at this time. He's being dealt with right now.

To everyone, if you come across one of 404's most recent posts, please try to ignore them and move on to the next post.

Thanks
