Not heard of one of these.

Hmm, sounds like the machine is a bit poorly...

A DMZ is an area of your network that has restricted access to the
internal machines. It's used for hosting a web server, for example, so
that if the machine with public access from the internet is hacked,
your internal machine(s) are safe (or safer) from it. It only applies
if you have a genuine router that connects to the internet.

It sounds like you can ignore this with your current set-up. Unless
you want more information about it, or don't understand my explanation
above...

Put the CD in the machine and boot from it. One of the options on the
initial menu that the CD displays is 'Check CD' or words to that
effect. It can take a while to run, but it will check that the Ubuntu
CD isn't bad.

Hwyl,
Neil.
