Post computing SHA1SUM


Hello all,

I am facing a problem with installing Fedora Core 4 on my laptop.

I already have WIN XP on my disk and downloaded the Fedora distribution. I burned the CDs(individual 4 cds) and started installing Fedora.

All of a sudden I find that CD is not fine (there is a CD checking utility during Fedora Installation). So, I want to check the SHA1SUM of the ISO images i downloaded.

Now, I don't have any other *nix machine available in the viscinity. The only and only availability is a WIN XP Professional. Is there any way I can compute and check the SHA1SUM for these ISO images on the WIN XP ?

Thanks in advance

Hello,
Thanks for the reply.
meanwhile i kept searching, and I found a utility "fsum.exe" for windows which can compute a lot of things on WIN XP.
these are the supported stuff .

-md2 - Include MD2 algorithm
-md4 - Include MD4 algorithm
-md5 - Include MD5 algorithm
-sha1 - Include SHA-1 algorithm
-sha256 - Include SHA-2(256) algorithm
-sha384 - Include SHA-2(384) algorithm
-sha512 - Include SHA-2(512) algorithm
-rmd - Include RIPEMD-160 algorithm
-tiger - Include TIGER algorithm
-panama - Include PANAMA algorithm
-adler - Include ADLER32 algorithm
-crc32 - Include CRC32 algorithm
-edonkey - Include MD4-based algorithm used in eDonkey and eMule applications

You can download the application from http://www.slavasoft.com/fsum/
