Problems Installing Mandrake 10, by Newbie


Pentium Celeron 400MHz
256 MB Ram
CDROM
3GB HDD

When I try to install Linux Mandrake, I get the intro screen, and it appears to work for a while, then it crashes, and I get this message.
error in exec of stage2
trying to execute '/usr/bin/runinstall2' from the installation volume
following fatal error in stage1: I/O error

I looked at the last few lines of the log, but I couldn't see anything wrong. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. This install will be the only OS on this system,

Did you run a checksum (md5sum) program to verify the images are perfect before making CDs.

Can I run a checksum on a Win machine? And if I can, what program is it / where can I get it?
Thanks

I got an MD5 program, FileCheckSumMd5 by Brandon Staggs from Cnet, I figure they are all about the same right? And according to the program, the first two files are corrupt, so that might by my problem, I am going to try and download them again.
