As you probably guessed, this means the iso-image is fine.

According to Debian's cd-burning faq, this should work.

Use finalize, Disc-at-once.

You do this from a windows system?  As far as I know, Windows is
incapable of follwing links.  Links are special unix files that point
to other files.  Just to be sure, let me check...off to kidsmachine...
yep this working potato installation disk has a debian file in the
root directory which is actually a link, but windows says it's a zero
length file, and doesn't use it as a link.

They should be readable under Linux.  And no, I haven't heard of a
computer getting distroyed because the installation disc was corrupt
in some weird way.  So go ahead, and if the discs are corrupt afterall
be assured that the installation programs will bark rather then go off
and destroy the only thing they can live on.
