Fernando, I ran into the same problem, but it freaked me out so I didn't 
proceed with the install. I just checked the checksum, here's what I got:

    md5sum FC3-planet-disc1.iso
    e14f111916d29101a6188748173fee5e  FC3-planet-disc1.iso

Here's what's listed on the Web download page:

	Inserting md5sum into iso image...
	md5 = b7f51b65aff14755b442631d1ce64a2d
	Setting supported flag to 0

I'm downloading the ISOs again. Let me know if there is in fact an error 
with the checksum. Btw, thinking I made an error running md5sum, I ran 
it with the --check option and received a bunch of garbage characters. 
I'm probably doing something wrong...
