Suse 9.3 Professional installation problem


Hi. I'm really new at linux and i have a problem when i try to install SuSe 9.3 Professional.
Everything goes ok until in the "setup configuration" step appears this message:

No source found at 'cd:///;devices=/dev/hdc'.
ERROR: No proposal.

Everything else is detected correctly.
I downloaded it from novell.com and burnt the cd images.
My cd-rom drive works fine so I don't know what this message means.
I think it has something to do with the packages which I don't
fully understand yet. I think I tried to add the packages manually
but that didn't work either.
I'd be really gratefull if someone could help me.

Ok. I've already tested the cd in the very same program installation and it says there is an error in the checksum and should not continue with the installation. I've tried in two different drives and is still the same.
What should I do?
I've got the the original downloaded files in the hard drive. Should I make another copy of the first CD ?

I'd suggest that whenever you do a download, you should also get the md5sum file thats usually in the same location.

Why? because when you check the md5sum thats downloaded to the one that you get from the ISO file, even a 1 character error indicates that the is a corruption of the download.

Sure, one character isn't much of a corruption, but if it's knackered in an important location, it can (theoretically) mean the difference between getting the distro installed and not.

If you only have windows, then you would need to get a small app to check the md5sum checksum number - md5summer is what I used to use when I still had windows (it's even easier to check in linux! )

regards

John

Oh and if the original download is screwed, then you'll have to re-download

Yeah so checksum the iso files and compare them to the check sums found in the download site evey checksum that is not the same indicates that you have to download the cd again......"maybe twice or three times" it depends on internet traffic and your connection

Ive downloaded 11 images to obtain 3 valid iso images of Mandrake 10.1
