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.

Althought I do same as egag, what Seiken is doing should be fine according to md5sum's man page. Anyway, try to take the checksum from the iso file and compare it to the one inside the .md5 file instead.
when I run "md5sum -c slackware-10.1-install-d1.iso", I get this:
md5sum: ./slackware/y/bsd-games-2.13-i386-6.tgz: No such file or directory
./slackware/y/bsd-games-2.13-i386-6.tgz: FAILED open or read

except there is much more before and after. I hit CTRL+C to get out of it and just copied a snippet.
when I run "md5sum slackware-10.1-install-d1.iso" (no -c option), I get this:
and when I run "cat slackware-10.1-install-d1.iso.md5", I get this:
The md5 file came with the torrent when I downloaded it. Too bad I don't still have mine....
That said, I did just rip an ISO of my slack 10 CD (dd if=/dev/hdc of=~/slack-disc1.iso), and the md5 hash matched the one you're comparing against perfectly. It looks as though your download is being corrupted somehow, unless there's a newer image that you're downloading and the md5 hash is the thing that's wrong.
In any event, I'm uploading it to my server as I type this. I'll PM you a link, since bandwidth is at a premium and I don't really want to post it for all to see. It's slow (40-60kb is the norm; I'm working on improving that), but I can guarantee you that the MD5, server-side, matches the MD5 you're checking against. I'll even ssh into the server and run the md5 on the server to make sure that it's correct there.
