Default FC17-Cannot open Font File True

Hi Folks, I recently downloaded the FC17 iso, in order to try out
Fedora.(Ubuntu user) via torrent and did a checksum verification check
which said that one file couldn't be read and 20 were not formatted
properly. The pgp key checked out OK.
After installing and rebooting, all went well up to just before the user
name & password stage, where it said it couldn't open font file true,
but after some time continued to boot. I decided to do a full upgrade of
all packages in the hope that this would fix things. No joy.
Now when it starts to boot it does the "cannot font file true" thing and
then, after the upgrade, says there is an orphan file link with missing
files and drops me to a shell from where I exit and fedora then does a
repair of files and alls well. But this has to be done every time I boot
up. I don't know how stable this would be?
I decided to do a direct download last night and got exactly the same
results on verification.
Am I doing something wrong with the download as it would seem that files
on downloading are missing or corrupt on both occasions?
I'm also reluctant to use any more bandwidth on upgrading & being
dropped to a shell every time.


Any help or advice would really be appreciated

Vince
