I'm having some problems burning CDs and am trying to check whether it's
the burner or the CDs. One of the things I'd like to do, but can't
figure out from the man pages, is to run an md5sum on the entire CD to
compare to the ISO image I downloaded. Is there a way to do this without
first making another ISO image from the CD? If so, would it give the
same result anyway?
On a related note, I downloaded all 4 ISOs for Fedora Core 4, but none
of them had the same checksum as specified on the mirror site. I tried
downloading Disk 1 a second time and had the exact same (but incorrect)
checksum as the first try. I asked my neighbour to download Disk 1 and
he got the exact same (but incorrect) checksum as I did. Coincidence???
Is it a common occurence for the checksum to be wrong, but consistent? I
think I tried different mirrors each time.
