Checksum on Cent OS 5.5 not coming up correct


I have been trying to download the CentOS 5.5 DVDs. I have tried the ftp mirror and the http mirror and do not come up with the same checksum as is displayed. Can someone verify the checksums for me. I am getting the following.
I get the following sums:
ac177a5476e3b255b89b659e5b10ba03 *CentOS-5.5-x86_64-bin-DVD-1of2.iso
083746ba5c809df09582fa973c93c594 *CentOS-5.5-x86_64-bin-DVD-2of2.iso

Thanks

The first link is where I got the isos. The checksums do not match what I get after downloading.
I read the links in the second link. No help there to this issue.

Time to try a download manager maybe or try some mirror close to you.

In some odd cases, wrong checksum is posted on the web but it is rare. I suspect your downloads are bad.

I have downloaded many ISOs from different mirrors and this is the first time I ahve run into a case where the checksum does not match what is posted.

Thanks for listening.
