Downloading Fedora 3 Problems

I downloaded all of the ISO files for Fedora 3, and then proceeded to burn them to a cd. The first 2 images burned fine and the md5 was correct. However, when I tried to burn discs 3 and 4, I got an error in nero that was something like "cannot read data". I then tried to check the md5 sum on the files using fsum, and it said that access to the file was denied. I then double checked to make sure that the file sizes were correct, and they are. What could be wrong? I`ve tried a few different mirrors with the same results. Why are these files corrupt?? Any help would be appreciated.

(Moving thread to installation)

Strange to be sure. Here's a couple of links that might give you a clue or two:

I still get nothing. If I try to burn the discs in Nero, I get a CRC error on the file. Also, when I try to check the md5 of the files, it says "denied". WTF???

Well, I've got Nero too, but I use this program a whole lot for ISO's http://www.snapfiles.com/get/cdburnerxp.html - If you're using XP, give it a try. I'd also try using this program for checking md5sum's - never had a problem with it. http://www.etree.org/md5com.html

Well, I decided to just d/l the DVD image through the torrent and VIOLA! Everything worked. Now I`m just waiting for the src rpms to d/l on the torrent as well. I guess it could have been something weird with my FTP program or something. Either way, I should be up and running later tonight.
