Assuming you mean md5sum -c, it means that nobody edited
sarge-i386-netinst.iso betweent he first check (run by md5sum) and the
second check (run by md5sum -c)

the -c option means it should take a list of files and md5sums which are
the output of a previous md5sum command and use that to check the
appropriately named files in the current directory.
