download the 'md5sum.exe' binary from the url @273 posted above and put it inside your '_windows_/System32' directory. once it's there, fire up command prompt and execute 'md5sum c:\path\to\iso\image.iso'. it will show you the MD5 hash of the iso image.
EDIT: of course change to path to the path where your iso image is located.
