Question Help verifying the download using the included SHA1SUM file

Hello, how do I use the SHA1SUM in the fedora 7 torrent to verify my file is ok?

I don't have a linux system installed yet, so I obviously can't use any unix commands.

Thx for your attention.

Here is an sha1sum for windows.

Other alternatives:

Use a live cd and verify from there.
Install cygwin and sha1sum.

I would use the link above though. If for some reason it doesn't come out the same, let me know before you trash the iso and I will try mine which I have verified on linux just to make sure there isn't any difference in algorithm.

I tried the sha1sum.exe program you linked to. It won't verify the sum and file automatically, but it can generate the sum for the .iso file again, so I just checked it was the same as the downloaded SHA1SUM.

Well, this means I can proceed with the installation. Thanks for the help!
