    The torrents on their website should be the safest method. Have you done an md5sum check of the .iso? And are you using a slow burn speed to avoid errors?

    If you have the option I'd reccomend a USB instead :D

    Distrowatch not hosting ISO's as far as i know, they only share links to other websites/ftp servers.

    Yep, I always use Universal USB Installer to create USB installers of Linux distros and no problem. It supports lots of distros Xubuntu included.
    I would check the ISO MD5 and see if they are corrupt

    Yep. Don't forget to use at best a USB 2.0. USB 3.0 seem to have issues either booting, or continuing the installation setup. I usually use an external 2.5" HDD with USB 2.0 adapter. Works perfect.

    BTW, for the small Netbook, I would advise Debian with xfce. I have used it on mine and it excels! I am now trying Debian with Mate and after some customizations it feels the same as xfce but uses less memory, which is good on my D255 with only 2GB.

    Slower settings tend to help, its possible the server is corrupt or his connection is screwy
