"The msdn site (at least the one I have access to) publishes sha-1 sums of the disk .iso files. (Reveal it by clicking the details button). Get a sha-1 checksumming program and run that on your down loaded file. I use sha1sum in my cygwin window. There are others.

Now you know the disk image is good. Then set your image burning software (nero, roxio, whatever) to verify and you should producing good disks every time."
