[vox-tech] [revised] md5sum (w/o html)

Forgive me. Didn't know that my email was being sent as html.

I've d/l iso files for linux cds.
Found suggestion on kubuntu web page to check these w/ md5sum.
Hard time understanding outcome once iso runs thru program.

knoppix 5.2 iso run thru gives a md5sum value of 51955807506120c90d43deebb5bc5a8e .

When hitting the "compare" button a window comes up with "Md5 Check Sums are different".

Sabayon iso gives similar results.

So...what does this mean? I have a value but thats all I have. No blatent signs telling me that the authenticity is legit nor file integrity.

Googling my way to enlightment.
