Let me know, because there is also a small chance the download got corrupted somewhere along the line, so you will want to check the MD5 checksum of the ISO image you downloaded and make sure it matched the one on the Ubuntu site.

Give me a shout if need instructions.

The md5sum on the DVD (which is also failing) is:

No just do an MD5 of the ISO image you downloaded from Ubuntu (not the burned disk)... depending on which you got, it should match one of these:

a8d8e24bf8b82b4302d074fcac380d65 *ubuntu-10.10-alternate-amd64.iso
419ad8ee1bb76a49490f4a08b5be43f0 *ubuntu-10.10-alternate-i386.iso
1b9df87e588451d2ca4643a036020410 *ubuntu-10.10-desktop-amd64.iso
59d15a16ce90c8ee97fa7c211b7673a8 *ubuntu-10.10-desktop-i386.iso
6877bf8d673b87ba9500b0ff879091d0 *ubuntu-10.10-netbook-i386.iso
ab66a1d59a8d78e9ea8ef9b021d6574a *ubuntu-10.10-server-amd64.iso
ce1cee108de737d7492e37069eed538e *ubuntu-10.10-server-i386.iso

Probably the bold one if you got 10.10 desktop 32bit

[EDIT]
To generate an MD5 checksum in Windows, you'll need a 3rd party application such as:
http://www.fastsum.com/press/windows-md5-checksum-utility.php
(BTW, you might want to check this for viruses... I haven't)

[EDIT2]
You might also try downloading the ISO from a different mirror, such as:
http://www.mirrorservice.org/sites/releases.ubuntu.com/10.10/
or
ftp://mirror.bytemark.co.uk/ubuntu-releases/10.10
etc.

Both of those are fast UK mirrors, see here for a full list:

Then we have found the problem, I get EADFF14CF18A1D2A7014A54E76C6A677 (by the way, the application was clean).
Should I redownload?

Yes :)

See edit 2 above

You want the:

ubuntu-10.10-desktop-i386.iso

Direct link here:
http://www.mirrorservice.org/sites/releases.ubuntu.com/10.10/ubuntu-10.10-desktop-i386.iso

and it's MD5 checksum should be:

59d15a16ce90c8ee97fa7c211b7673a8

this is looking much more promising as it's the right size - facepalm moment when I noticed that my previous iso file was a tenth the size it should be  :o

heh... we've all done it... I know I have, and spent a day wondering what was wrong ;)

Figured I was lucky and just got a good connection.

...now very confused... it's 693 mb and it's still got the wrong checksum:
EADFF14CF18A1D2A7014A54E76C6A677 *ubuntu-10.10-desktop-i386.iso

Should I go ahead and burn it anyway?

You can certainly try... it's not going to hurt anything when run in LiveCD mode, but I wouldn't install from it till I've tested it... where did you get the ISO from... gimme a link and I'll download it too and check the MD5, there is a chance, they've changed the ISO and haven't updated the MD5 checksums, but I doubt it.

Or try a different MD5 checksum application in Windows just in case it's the software:
http://www.md5summer.org/

693 MB sounds about right... I get (in Linux) -
693.2 MB (726827008 bytes)
but that's no positive indication that the ISO isn't corrupt.

I got it from the mirrorservice.org direct link. Perhaps they've changed the md5sum, perhaps my checksum software is bad, but I'll try running from CD

Now posting from Ubuntu   8)
I agree, I should check to ensure the Live CD is exactly right before I install - what sort of tests should I carry out, or is the fact that it's booting and seems to be testing enough?

Just run a "Check media for defects", as explained above... I'm guessing the MD5 checksum software went mad on you, as the generated checksum was EXACTLY the same as your "under sized" original download... which is impossible.

or try the other MD5 software I listed:
http://www.md5summer.org/
and see what that comes up with.

the new md5sum software works a treat, my iso is correct afterall and I cross my fingers and go to install it...
No doubt I'll soon be back with another problem; this is never ending.
