Sounds like either your download got corrupted or the write to the USB drive got corrupted .
You can try downloading via Windows and using this tool for Windows to write the usb image .

I did it with the pc-tool.

IsnĀ“t it possible to create a live-DVD without that usb and network-booting stuff?

@Fingus

The problem is that my Kernels and ramdisks are too big for the current version of the Sam ub2lb boot loader required for boot from DVD.
A lot of functions and most of the supported video cards would have to be stripped out to get the kernel back down to the supported size. If ub2lb were recompiled to allow larger kernels sizes and larger ramdisk sizes then no problem. (I think that this needs the DENX cross compiler setup which I have not been able to get set up. It won't compile native for me)
Later on if you install to harddrive ub2lb does not support ext4 partitions and can cause problems booting AmigaOS when an ext4 partition exists on the hard drive.

The fastest and best solution is to boot the Linux kernels and ramdisks from a TFTP server so no need for the USB stuff .
