insert the disk
compare the output of this command  (/dev/sr0 is the device file of your cd-rom/dvd this could be different if you need to know how to find out ask it)
md5sum /dev/sr0

with the contents of this file.
http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.0/iso/dvd/MD5SUMS

If they are different your disk is corrupt.

Cheers
