I don't know if this is relevant in your case but I've been looking at
MD5 sums of the ISO's because of checksum failures referred to in

I finally did get a good disk one after downloading the second time from
one of the mirrors but disk two from that same mirror fails after the
If you're running winders to download the ISO's you might try Kana
