You are right! I rarely use a physical DVD - and usually do installs
via a usbkey or via an HD install with the iso on a partition that is
not being formatted, and then booting a grub stanza added to grub.conf
- the iso checksums are confirmed with sha256sum whenever I pull the
iso files - but you are right that I should have also done a media
check on the burned DVD when installing using an optical drive -
