          Don't know why you've faced this problem, I was able to download and install OEL using *.iso files. Could you try to install it directly to VMware machine firstly before copying it to CD?

            As much as needed. The ISO should be the only file on the disk. The approximate size you expect is given on the download page.
            Q2 I am downloading it using kget download manager IS there any harm using KGET?
            Perhaps. I have no experience with it related to Oracle product.
            Q3 In this situation what should i do?
            Try again using a different download techique?

            Did you verify the download cksum as provided by Oracle on the download page? Did you verify the download was indeed clean before you burned the DVD? Did you read the README provided by Oracle on the download page?

                        Please talk to your closest Oracle Sales rep about purchasing a CD pack.

                        Or find an Oracle user group with a member who mikght loan you a CD pack.

                        Or try to purchase one from the Oracle store at http://store.oracle.com

                        Or go to an Oracle conference session in your area, as they often hand these things out for free.
