Thanks Larry. Not even getting to a boot prompt. First time, it was 
saying: 'Press any key to try again'. - gives same results.
I've been Googling the above. It seems that there are some 
incompatibilities that others have reported with Isolinux? I'm wondering 
if others here have seen the problem here? I know about the checksum 
error thing. I've done other installs from CD's without a problem. 
Thought a DVD would be a better install medium. Perhaps with my Intel 
D875PBZ motherboard, there is a conflict loading ISO images? Don't know. 
Haven't found any workarounds if that is indeed the case. I have the 
latest Intel bios. Is there one install medium provider that most 
prefer? To be sure to get good disks. I'd prefer getting a disk(s) from 
someone rather than trying to burn my own. Thoughts, advice appreciated. 
Thanks.
