Awesome. Welcome to the gNewSense community.

*** Notes for checking iso

* a] check the download      *
* b] then check burnt CD iso *

1] download iso to Desktop

2] copy md5sum to text file
897d81b3c2493b4779dea45d6b7f041c  gnewsense-livecd-deltah-i386-2.3.iso
save as md5sum--gnewsense-2.3

3] Terminal
address@hidden:~$ cd Desktop
address@hidden:~/Desktop$ md5sum gnewsense-livecd-deltah-i386-2.3.iso
897d81b3c2493b4779dea45d6b7f041c  gnewsense-livecd-deltah-i386-2.3.iso

4] copy md5sum to text file and compare.
If all digits same then OK.

You could also do:

md5sum -c MD5SUMS

It will complain about missing files, but it compares the iso file you have automatically.

5] Burn CD... ignore K3B or Brasero integrity checks!
Put CD in drive and go to terminal
address@hidden:~/Desktop$ df -h
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1              19G   15G  2.9G  84% /
varrun                760M  100K  760M   1% /var/run
varlock               760M     0  760M   0% /var/lock
udev                  760M   72K  760M   1% /dev
devshm                760M   12K  760M   1% /dev/shm
lrm                   760M   40M  721M   6%
gvfs-fuse-daemon       19G   15G  2.9G  84% /home/james/.gvfs
/dev/scd0             614M  614M     0 100% /media/cdrom0

Just comparing md5sum should be sufficient.

address@hidden:~/Desktop$ md5sum /dev/scd0
897d81b3c2493b4779dea45d6b7f041c  /dev/scd0

copy md5sum to text file and compare.
If all digits same then OK.
