Slackware ISO Block count incorrect?
 
Hey slackers, just attempting to attempt to install slackware 10.
Downloaded the official ISO's from the site last night. My nero is telling me that the block count is incorrect... is that normal?

Don't think so. Did you test the download with md5sum?

no I didn't do that. How do I do that in windows?

nero can be really bad when it comes to disc images... buggy buggy buggy.. otherwise it's very good..
but.. it's more likely that your image is corrupt.. and checking the sum would be the best place to start..

here are links to the command-line and gui tools for windows md5 checksumming
