   * '''Anaconda''' tests the integrity of installation media by default. This function works with the CD, DVD, hard drive ISO, and NFS ISO installation methods. The Fedora Project recommends that you test all installation media before starting the installation process, and before reporting any installation-related bugs.  Many of the bugs reported are actually due to improperly-burned CDs.  To use this test, type {{{linux mediacheck}}} at the `boot:` prompt.
