Different md5sum no.

Hi. I have just downloaded mandrake 10.1 and when I ran a md5sum check on it the number where different from those on the site I downloaded it from. How do I know if the copy I have is the same or will work or what not? Is the only way to find out to run them? Or am I better of downloading them again from a different site?

Generally if your checksums don't match, you are better off grabbing the iso's again. If you are bored or have a lot of free time, or are simply curious, you could certainly try to find what didn't quite get copied completely...
