Anyone else have CheapBytes CD trouble?

I just received my Debian 2.2 CDs from Cheapbytes -- 3 binary
CD-ROMS.  I could not boot off the first one (the installation program
complained that it couldn't mount the rescue image).

I decided to run `md5sum' on each file on the CD-ROM, and compare its
output with the file /cdrom/md5sum.txt.  I was surprised to find that
they differed.  Here's how I did it:

        (cd /cdrom; find . -type f -print0 | xargs -0 md5sum)

Here's one file whose sum isn't what the md5sum file says it should be
(there are many other such files):

7eea9e34469920cf5b3de06e527186bb  ./dists/potato/main/disks-i386/2.2.16-2000-07-14/images-1.44/rescue.bin
dc8e866f3a26cfa8a38f15d328519c92  ./dists/potato/main/disks-i386/2.2.16-2000-07-14/images-1.44/rescue.bin

Some of the files seem to be random data; one file whose name ends in
`.tgz' is actually text.

Has anyone else had this problem?
