Two things:

1. check the md5sum
2. make sure you follow the
instructions that Matt pointed you to.

You appear to be posting from an IP in Santa Clara county. If you don't
get it working in a day or two drop me a note offlist & I'll be happy to
give you a working CD & see if I can help you out directly. Note: I have
both Live CD & Alternate for Dapper 6.061 and Alternate CD's for 7.04 -
I no longer install using the Live CD's.
