Question Fedora Core 3 Installation CDs Fix?


I have downloaded the four FC3 installation ISO's, but discs 3 and 4's md5sum's didn't match. I tried another download of disc 3 but it also lost some bits. The ISO's are writable though and I have this plan:
1. Can anyone please furnish me with a list of the rpms, including file details of discs 3 and 4.
2. I would then compare it to the disc's I have, and download only the rpms that are corrupt.
3. Then I'll edit the ISO's and rewrite disc 3 and 4.

Can this work?

Fedora Core 3 downloads CORRUPT

To whom it may concern:

I have downloaded FC3 disk 2 five times from different mirrors and every time the md5sum showed the download was corrupt! It doesn't matter which mirror I use; the downloads are all corrupt! Even media checked it with FC3 install disk 1-which downloaded and burned to cd ok and the md5sum showed the download was correct without errors. I also media-checked it with FC2 install DVD which came with a book I bought. The media check showed the cd I burned was bad. The image on the CD matched perfectly with the ISO file on my hard disk. The CD itself is brand-new. The ISO file I downloaded is BAD; 5 times it was downloaded corrupt! So what gives? I have to buy the CDs from some vendor? I have downloaded other ISO files with no problem. This is the 1st time I have run into this problem.
