I am not sure if I understood you well, but you should give a look at the md5sum of your iso's... I had same problem, but after I checked out, i realised it was corrupted (not same md5sum's).
In any way, if you cannot find a "reliable" ftp server along with your ISP (but I am sure you can), always it is worth to buy the DVD directly from Pat, a.k.a. Slackware Store...
