Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

1. Make sure you are in the directory in which you saved the downloaded iso image.
2. At a command prompt, enter the command (where filename is the name of the iso file): md5sum filename
The calculation may take several minutes. When it's done, you should see the md5 signature (a 32-digit sequence of numbers and letters) of the iso image you downloaded.
3. Compare this with the signature of the file on the server. If they are the same, you can be sure that the image on your computer is uncorrupted. If they differ, the image is corrupted and you will have to download it again.
To check after burning, you simply rip an iso of the cd and check again.
