How can I disable md5sum checking in K3B?


When burning a copy of the Fedora 10 iso, K3B first performs an md5sum check before starting. Not only is this useless information (Fedora uses SHA1SUM), but it delays the process and apparently runs my HDD at full speed for all that time (perhaps 5 minutes). I would like to disable this "feature," but my searches of the Internet and LQ have resulted in no information. Does anyone know how to disable the automatic md5sum check in K3B?

There is no need to disable it. Simply burn it (don't wait)... if you are sure about integrity.
