12 When you downloaded this image twice and got incorrect hashes, did you get the _same_ wrong hash, or _different_ wrong hashes?
14 This dvd .iso file is pretty large - far larger than you need for your installation media - and I can only speculate that it's something to do with the size. Maybe, after 4GB, the ISP redirects to a webpage saying "you're taking the mickey with your download limits, pal" and that's what's causing the corruption.
16 I have no idea why you're bothering with this - I'd just download systemrescueCD (which is over a year newer, anyway) and get on with my install. Once Gentoo is downloaded, each emerge will md5sum each package's download automatically and if the problem really is with your system or RAM, then you'll know about it pretty quick.
