    I think your all missing the boat. The md5sum is a way to increase 
the probability that the software on that mirror is the same as the 
master. But before you go looking for it Download the software and see 
if it works. I have been 100% lucky. I have 2 LiveCD's that loaded my 
computer and I have no idea what the md5sum is and care not the least :-)

    If your download doesn't work a check will be against the sum and 
such things. But as a rule the problem is the Nut behind the wheel.
