What exactly 'didn't work'? Regarding SL 5.1 x86 DVD being the case as the most recent that I retested it under vmware, the image passed the sha1sum check, burned it and verified at the same time with nerolinux, but during installation the "medium checking" showed "FAILED", and when I proceeded with installation something very bad like kernel-panic (but not sure if it was kernel-panic) occurred and it rebooted. I have checked my system with memtest86+ 1.70 with no problems found with the default tests. Now I am redownloading the CentOS 5.1 x86 DVD install image, and I will use the image itself first as a virtual DVD under vmware, and will try to verify the medium during install and see if it proceeds OK with installation. If it succeeds, I will burn it to a DVD-RW and retry the same things. SL 5.0 x86 DVD and CentOS 5.0 x86 DVD work OK.
