There is a md5 checksum  available at <http://www.tug.org/mactex/downloading.html> so you can check that you have the correct download. We recommend downloading using Sasfari; in the past we have seen some problems when downloading .pkg files with other browsers.

I downloaded MacTeX.pkg this afternoon using Safari while I was out for errands. I just attempted to do the install and immediately got the message "The Installation Failed". Then I checked the size of  the downloaded MacTeX.pkg and it was only about 450MB, so something actually failed during the download process. I'll have to try again sometime later after it's safe here from pop-up lightning storms.
