Checksums of the ISO Images
sha1sum are used to verify the integrity of files. The checksum functions as a compact digital fingerprint of a file. It is extremely unlikely that any two non-identical files existing in the real world will have the same checksum hash.
In the Wikipedia articles about sha1sum you find external links to utilities that can be used to verify the checksum.
The ISO files are large, so it might take a long time to download them. If you have a slow connection to the Internet, consider using a download manager. Download managers typically enable you to pause and recommence the download at convenient times and to resume a download that was interrupted.
Download CD or USB stick
To write the USB stick ISO file to a disc, your computer needs to have a drive that can write to a USB memory stick. If your computer has Internet connectivity or a drive that only writes CD media, download the CD-sized files instead.
The process of burning the ISO image to a disc varies according to your operating system and the software that you have available. To turn an ISO image file into a CD, you need disc burning software that can handle ISO image files, but this is true of most disc burning software.
If you are using Windows, and don't have software for burning ISO images, you can download InfraRecorder for free. InfraRecorder is a free software CD/DVD burning solution for Microsoft Windows.
If you are using Linux with GNOME, you can use the disc burning software integrated with the GNOME desktop. Just right-click on the ISO image file that you downloaded. In the Write to Disc dialog box that appears, select the "write button".
If you are using Linux with KDE, K3b is the default disc burning software for the KDE desktop. Start K3B and select Tools → Burn CD Image to burn a CD.
Booting the CD
To boot the CD you just created, insert the CD into the DVD/CDROM player and restart the computer. When the computer starts, watch for a message that tells you to press a certain key to choose a boot device. This is often F12, but can also be F1, F2, Esc or Del. From the boot menu choose cd/dvd drive.
