Compiled Fedora 8 Bootable DVD :- isolinux:image checksum error

I am new to Linux and use Nero on Windows to burn CD/DVD.

I have the Digit-Feb-08 DVD which is of 8.4 GB capacity. It is a bootable Fedora 8 DVD plus it contains additional tools & utilities for Windows platform. If I minus the Windows utilities the 'fedora only content' will be well below 4.0 GB. I wanted to make a bootable Fedora 8 disk on a 4.6 GB DVD by skipping the windows utilities from the original Digit-Feb-08 DVD.

I did it like that. i dumped the fedora only content to a folder (I am sure I didn't miss any file/folder except the windows utilities.)
i extracted the boot image of the original bootble DVD using BBIE (BART's Boot Image Extractor) to a separate location. Then i compiled a bootable DVD in Nero, gave the extracted (by BBIE) bootimage.bin, added all dumped content, ensured emulation type is set to -No emulation & Number of loaded sectors to 4 and burned a DVD.

On booting from that DVD i geta error message like:- " isolinux [ver xx.xx.xx.xx] :image checksum error, sorry "

Please help me ;My need is to compile succesful Linux boot images (.nrg or .iso) as per my requirement i.e I should add /remove extra contents easily before burning the bootable disk . For Windows OS making bootable disks is not a problem since there is no checksum verification, where as for making a Linux bootable
CD/DVD it is a frequent problem.

Thank you for your patience in reading this post.
