I have downloaded the BT5R1-KDE-32 torrent, and used md5summer to check it w no errors. I've burned 2 iso images which I also checked w md5summer w no errors, one w the burner in windows 7 and one w astroburn lite. I'm using verbatim dvd+r dl media that was made in singapore, which is supposed to be good media. I installed a program from the ubuntu installation disc that makes it easier to boot from a cd. And I've searched these forums, and didn't find anything. I tried to download directly from the site, but my connection isn't good. I can try it w a 4 gig usb stick and unetbootin if someone thinks it would work? Or point me towards the thread w the answer? I'm going through the "If you are new to Back Track or Linux read this thread" stuff now, so I apologize if I'm missing something obvious. I'm just getting started, but I thought I'd ask. Thanks in advance for any tips.
