windows xp and linux suse 9.1


Hi all,
I'm so new to linux that i didn't even installed it :-)
I have windows xp installed on my laptop toshiba satellite ????( i don't remember what model) with ram 386 MB and cpu 1.1 GHz.
I have made a linux partition on the hard disk of 4 GB and a swap partition of 500 MB to install linux. I downloaded the file Linux SuSe personal x86.iso or something like that and I burned it.
I set up the linux partition as active and when restarting i started the cd.
Everything goes fine, I choose installation in the menu.
It runs Yast and it ask for language, all right till this point.
Now the problem is that to the next step of configuration in the section software it says that it can't load the packets and that the media is maybe corrupted...I burned the cd 2 times just to be sure and by the way the cd looks ok even in windows xp. Has anyone idea?
Thanks and sorry for my english.
Dario

it might just be that the file you've downloaded is incorrect.
you can check with a checksum , but i dunno how...( anybody ??? )
that info might be on the location where you got the ISO-img.

but i never check, incase of probs with reading; just download the img. again.

I tried to download the .iso file 2 times and i burned two times the cd. I don't know what else to do.
Thanks for answering but do you have any other suggestion?I think the file is correct, there was one only version that was this suse 9.1 x86.iso
any help is great

it will not make itself work .
and why take suse.....if any other CD in M$ is oke, just try another distro.( wanna learn -> Slackware )
easy(er) install-( mandrake has good ref. but there 's a lot of them distro's out there ! ).
