My md5sum has no extension. What program do I use to run it?
I just downloaded a Fedora Core DVD ISO (FC2-i386-DVD.iso, to be exact) using bittorrent. The download consisted of the 4.2 GB ISO and a 1 KB file called MD5SUM. There is no extension at the end of the MD5SUM file. I know that the MD5SUM file is used to verify the integrity of the download. My questions are....
#1 Should the MD5SUM file have an extension (I read in another forum that sometimes the .md5 extension is removed during the download.)?
#2 What program do I use to verify the download?
Currently I am running Windows XP Professional on a Athlon XP 1800, 256 MB DDR ram,
Also, I am a complete newbie to linux (as you can probably already tell) so the more information you can give me, the better. Thank you.
