How to make an md5sum for custom multidistro CD/DVD?


I'm steadily cranking out my own multidistro's, but want to know how to generate an md5sum when I create a CD from multiple distro's-anybody know?

just run md5sum on the file, no options or anything, and it'll spit it out after it's processed the file.

How do I do that?
And being that they are differing distro's mashed together, how will I know if the md5sum is correct?
Thanks!

did you try looking at the tiny man page? "md5sum my.iso"

what do you mean "correct"? you're the one generating it...

Awesome! Thanks alot.

Code:
root@bz-desktop:/home/bz/Desktop#
 md5sum /home/bz/Desktop/MultiDistro-Toolz-v4.20.iso
a7f261e3e9c70d39fc2c1f8107318684  
/home/bz/Desktop/MultiDistro-Toolz-v4.20.iso
So how do I make a md5sum.txt, just imitate others CD's and put my md5sum in the folder?
