Fedora Core 4 test 1 DVD (i386)

I was wondering if anyone has tried this install.
I burnt the iso file and when the dvd boots, I did the disc check and it failed.
I didn't actually try to install after this, but I was wondering if anyone has.
I tried redownloading and reburning it and it still failed. I think it might be a bug.

Nevermind I found this here in the 2005-March text file.

You may be victim of several bugs. The DVDs are probably OK. The media
test is not working. Also, if you log into the gui without first
logging into a text terminal (CTRL-ALT-F1 for example) as root and running
yum update gdm
you will not get a useable screen. You must also manually add a normal
user as root - the firstboot program is also hosed.
