I did understand correctly. There is a mediacheck bug on both FC4 and FC5, and the linux ide=nodma is a workaround for this bug. Perfectly good discs can fail the media check. 3 of my discs failed. I ran linux ide=nodma and the discs that failed passed with that option and the installation continued on without problems
EDIT: This is not to guarentee that your problem will be solved with this option, but there is a very good chance, especially if the discs pased the shasum
