Did you check the SHA1 checksums of the downloaded ISO's against those
in the SHA1SUM file?  You will find this file in the same directory that
you downloaded the ISO's from.

In Linux, use the sha1sum program to do this.  Download the SHA1SUM file
to the same directory as the ISO's, and type:

  $ sha1sum -c SHA1SUM
