Is it possible to download Ubuntu and make a bootable DVD instead of a bootable CD?

I just downloaded it. I lost many times my inet connection while downloading it, how can I check if the .iso is alright? (I used DownThemAll! in Firefox to download it and pause after connection lost)
Which software can burn a DVD and make it bootable?

Thanks a lot in advance! And sorry for my sucky english :/

ubuntu provide a file

ubuntu provide a file MD5SUMS with their ISO images that contains MD5 checksums of the files. IF you are on linux or similar right now, open a terminal and type

$ cd where/the/ISO/is        (for example: "cd Desktop"
$ md5sum --check MD5SUMS        (this will complain about files you didn't download, and display "OK" or failed for the one you did get.)

As to burning, any CD burning program that can write ISO images should have no problem with bootability. This certainly holds true to any linux burning program (to shout out a few names: k3b, brasero, xcdroast), and I believe most commercial burning programs (if you are on windows) have image writing support - IIRC, the first time I wrote a bootable CD I used Nero 5. If you are on Windows, this (brought up by a quick google for "iso image burning windows") might be worth a look.

Thanks a lot free-zombie!

Thanks a lot free-zombie! I'll search in Google for a 'md5' software in Windows Smiling

EDIT:

I found a nice guide here https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BurningIsoHowto
and I downloaded the MD5 Checksum from here http://nginyang.uvt.nl/edgy/MD5SUMS

Sorry, I asked a question without using Google before Sticking out tongue

Hey guys!! I'm on Ubuntu Smiling This is my first time on Linux, it's AWESOME!!!
Windows still working so far

Edit: hmmm i just checked my partitions and i did something wrong. I gave "/" 24GB and to "/media/sda2" only 10GB. Do I need to format and do it again?

I don't know. In the guide

I don't know. In the guide I was reading I saw "/" must have less space and "media/sda" must have more

Oh, I don't see that you

Oh, I don't see that you need to have the / partition less than /media/sda2. Your home directory (where you store your files) will be in /home/username which resides on the / partiton, so I'm not even sure why they suggested you needed /media/sda2 - could you post a link to the guide you were using?

But anyway it should all work properly as you have it now setup, welcome to the world of GNU/Linux Smiling
