Fedora 17 ISO


Hi:

I downloaded Fedora 17 x86_64bit ISO file to my downloads but I want to check that that file is not corrupt before I burn the ISO to DVD/CD.

Is there an application that I can use to verify that that file is ok?

In order to install Fedora on my laptop alongside with Win 7 should I choose manual or expert mode?

Easier to use a torrent client and check the data with the client than to use checksums. One reason why I almost always torrent linux/BSD .isos.

Thanks for the link!

I will have to do a little research on 'torrent client to check the data' because I've never used it before.
Thanks for the help.

How you do that can vary from torrent client to torrent client. Normally for GUI torrent clients, you just right click on the file you want to check, then select 'check data' (or some similar option).
