You are correct in your doubts--it seems that the files did not download
completely.  Are you using a FAT partition (DOS or earlier Windows)?  I
don't think they can handle files that size.  Or maybe it's the program
you used to download the images.  At any rate--these .iso's are broken
and won't work right (at all, likely).

You are also correct in that.  To use a DVD image, you need blank DVD
and a DVD burner (I don't think + or - matters).  If you just have
regular CD's try the CD images.  If you have a fast net connection, I
would grab the one labelled 'netinst' and do a network install.  Or the
'businesscard' one if you have a spiffy mini-CD ;)
