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
