The checksum problem can be related to your CD/DVD copy not matching the checksum of the original downloaded ISO image. Which distribution are you trying to install and where did you download the image from? There is a distribution specifically made for Acer Aspire One. You can give it a try: http://www.linux4one.it (scroll down the page for the english translation).

Hi,

Whenever you download something you should perform a 'md5sum' check for the download to confirm everything is valid.
