OK reburning - but did you check md5sums? No use burning a defective 
download ..... I would start there if that has not been done

I have installed ubuntu on several machines including an old a slooooow 
laptop, and no problems with bsdutils. No info on what may be wrong in the 
bsdutils README. But I think I would assume a defective CD first.

Be glad to see other opinions
