That is the same thing I did, but it returns an error that the argument specified is a directory and not a file!!
But Fedora core 4 installation instruction do specify that you should use sha1sum to verify your cd?? That what I cant figure out.. Thanks

You can test the sha1sum of the .iso file before burning the CD, but the easiest way of checking the CD once you've burned it is to use the "Check media" option that appears when you boot the CD, before you get to the installation proper.
