FC4 Download

Could someone suggest me some site from where I can download a workable FC4 ISOs? I tried to download it from Fedora site and few other mirror sites and the media check always fails. I even tried to burn it in different write speeds but still the result is same. Also can someone please tell me why such problems happens? Is it because of the people at Fedora putting wrong binaries? (It is surprising to believe though). I kept checkeing for the updates at the Fedora site and the last binary was delivered at Jun 6th. But till date the binaries were not updated. So if everyone is facing same problem as me then they must have replaced the binaries. So I'm wondering where exactly it goes wrong.
Thanx in advance,
- Jack

Try linux question! see if you can download it from there. Why not try burning it anyway and see what happens?

Ignore the media check. Each package on the disc(s) has its own checksum, so if anything is really wrong with any of the packages, the installer will tell you.

The media check failing is a well-known bug; use the boot command
linux ide=nodma
