Linux Suse Installation

I got trouble while installing Linux Suse, Linux v3.3.59 (kernel
The error message form said:

File:/var/adm/mount/boot/x86_64/root: sum wrong, if you really trust your repository, you may continue in an insecure mode.

I installed on IBM 3500 M3, 16 Gb Ram.

Sounds as if the checksum was wrong, so the installation files may be corrupt. If you downloaded the distribution, there should also have been a checksum for you to test. What it is warning you is that such a failure would also occur if malicious files hade been added.
