Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I've spent quite a lot of hours now trying to figure why my slackware fails when installing. A burnt a ISO using Easy CD-Creator. When trying to install (booting from the cd) it gives me errors on some packages stating that there might be something wrong with the tar file. So I reburnt the CD' again and tried well then it just fails on ohters packages.
Location: Rome, Italy ; Novi Sad, Srbija; Brisbane, Australia
Distribution: Ubuntu / ITOS2008
Linux doesn't like AMDs? Now why should you think that?!? As long as the kernel is compiled with AMD optimization it runs without problems, although i dont think this is necessary but reccomended. Nothing wrong with AMDs and Linux. Someone correct me if i'm wrong.
Given the fact that three different CD's are giving the same type of problem it seems likely that you have one of two problems. Either (as everyone else seems to be saying) your CD burner software is malfunctioning or your CDROM unit is going bad. First try using another CD burner package, then try cleaning your CDROM. Finally, if neither works, try another CDROM.

Either his CDROM unit is going bad or he needs a new burner program. This is the best advice you could come up with.
First, why doesnt he check to make sure he didnt download a CORRUPT ISO????
I think that the most likely culprit will be the ISO, but as someone before stated, try nero. it handles iso's well.
Poke around inside your iso using a program like winimage available from HERE
