Although I downloaded the files 2 times each and burned it on 3 different CDs
using 2 different CD-burners, the installation always failed while trying to
load the file libc-udeb.
Here are the MD5 checksums of the files I downloaded:
When checking CD's integrity, it says that the
file ./dists/sarge/main/binary-i386/Release is corrupted.
Some other minor remarks:
Display is uglier on my computer with the framebuffer than without it.
French translation is very incomplete.
When ejecting CD while testing integrity, it says the CD is ok.
