I've twice downloaded the file from and got the same
different checksum each time:
[aw1 at steerpike ~/BETA4]$ md5 *dvd1*
MD5 (8.0-BETA4-amd64-dvd1.iso.gz) = 91d91323503c976d8b0cf60be62582ef
MD5 (broken.8.0-BETA4-amd64-dvd1.iso.gz) = 91d91323503c976d8b0cf60be62582ef

Burning a DVD with growisofs results in a disk which is neither
mountable nor bootable.

The other amd64 files match their checksums.

A DVD burnt from disc1 is mountable and bootable, so it probably isn't
my DVD burner.

I like the memory stick image (8-)

About to put my toe in more advanced waters with my first 64bit machine,
with ZFS too.
