[lug] Fedora Core 9 Bad ISO images?

I just downloaded the FC9 set of CD ISO images from 
http://ftp.usf.edu/pub/fedora/linux/releases/9/Fedora/i386/iso/ and 
during the install test 4 out of 6 turned up bad (discs 2 - 5). Just to 
be sure, I made another copy of disc 2 from the first download and even 
downloaded it again and both CDs were bad.

But I remember that something similar happened with FC6, and it turned 
out that the disks weren't really bad at all, but that you had to do 
something prior to the install to get them to work.

Can anyone shed some light on this for me? Are the files corrupt or is 
the test flakey? Should I try an install them anyway?
