I downloaded slackware 9.1 and tested it with md5 and there wernt any errors but once i burned it the cd had errors on it..I tryed downloading it over and ended up with the same result.Im using nero 6 then i went to "recorder" then to "burn image" then selected "Slackware-9.1-install-d1.iso" then hit bur..Both times the cd burned sucessfully though nero but ended up having errors

Where are you downloading it from? Have you tried a different download from a different site? Try www.linuxiso.org
I've burned mine from there without any problems. Also you'll probably need both iso images if you want KDE or Gnome installed.

Put your CD into a running machine's CDROM and see if the files are there, or if it's just a .iso on the CD. I've downloaded countless images from linuxiso.org and burned them with Nero without any problems.

Either bad burner or bad media.. try a different type of cdr I would suggest at this time..

Either that or try burning at a slower speed might help as well.. but in most cases its the media itself in such scenarios.
