Hi All,

This is just an update on my problem & a big thank you to all the kind folk 
who gave me help & advice.

It appears that my original download of the gparted file was incomplete & on 
downloading again yesterday a full 100MB file was received instead of the 
original 95MB. Obviously vital missing files stopped the burning operation.

Brassero kept telling me that the checksums did not match & in my ignorance I 
didn't realize what this meant. However, on using K3B, it spoke to me in 
simple language that I understood & the penny dropped. hence the new download 
& a perfect live CD burnt.

Once again, thanks for all the help!
