Have you read the release notes?  Section 6.2 addresses both issues you
have raised.  <http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/release-notes/>  Go with the
erratta as the more up-to-date version.

Another way to test the integrity of the burn is to copy the CD back into
an ISO and checksum that.  This won't check whether the installer can read
the CD.  If the mediacheck passes after following the instructions in the
release notes section 6.2, you might choose to install the same way; if you
do, you will have to adjust DMA to regain performance.  It also used to be
possible to put padding on the burns so that the checksums will pass; I
don't know if that still works.
