Problems installing OpenSuSe 10.2


I am just curious if anyone else has had this issue. Ok, I downloaded the ISO from distrowatch twice. The first time I downloaded it, it burned without error and when I went to install it, the welcome screen had a bunch of "Christmas penguins" as a border, I thought this was strange but whatever. I got to a point in the install where it said "Can not find Suse resources. So I thought maybe i just got a corrupted download. So I downloaded it again. As before, it burned without error. When I booted the computer with the DVD in the drive I was greeted with the initial screen and there was no " Christmas penguins" it looked like a normal Suse screen for installation, So Im not sure what the deal was there. If anyone has any ideas please feel free to share them This time I got a little farther with installation although I was presented with another error. This time it was a "ZSH" error. So I decided that since I wasted my last 2 DVD's burning this, I would go back to my SuSe 10.1 64 install which I am currently using. Has anyone else had any problems with SuSe 10.2? And if anyone is curious, here is the link I got both downloads from.

The first time I used PowerISO from within Windoze Vista 5600, thats when I got the Christmas penguins lol. The second time was with in Suse 10.1 with K3B

And where did those damn Penguins go anyway lol, that was a hell of a surprise. I never expected that lol

I am going to try burning it with Alcohol 120%...
Those penguins sometimes show up when you turn on or restart, but only sometimes.
