Once you finished downloading each ISO image, you need to check the MD5SUM to verify that the image was intact. Verifying the checksum is easy, just
Code:
md5sum <filename>
where <filename> is the actual file name of the ISO image. Compare the resulting output (which will be a long stirng of letters and numbers) to the reference MD5SUM for that ISO. Note that the MD5SUM's will be available from the same site you downloaded the images from. Good luck with it
