SUSE MD5 checksum for DVD ISO refuses to match


Okay....this is a wierd question, but I really need to know what other users are doing.

I have downloaded the SUSE DVD ISO 4 times (full-blown, offline install ISO).... and I get the same MD5... but it is different than the MD5 that Novell/SUSE has given.

I need it for a computer that doesn't have an internet connection, so having the entire DVD ISO image is a must. Otherwise, the FTP method (which downloads only the needed packages) would probably suffice.

This is the MD5 I get:
babc0d896e00c75261c6d3ab5eb02b4e

And this is the ISO SUSE claims I should have:
ab648822abbd89906adb66f7cddd6bc2

I have downloaded the ISO 4 times, and generated md5 sums twice each (one with md5summer for win32 and once on a linux server). I get the same MD5.

I also get the exact number of bytes that SUSE claims the file should be.

This is the server(s) I have downloaded from are here:

ftp://chuck.ucs.indiana.edu/linux/su.../i386/9.2/iso/
ftp://suse.cs.utah.edu/pub/suse.com/suse/i386/9.2/iso/

Should I be worried? In the past, when I have had bad md5 sums, the CDs I burned from the ISOs were always bad (there's obviously a reason for md5).

Never mind.... SUSE's ISO was based on text mode. Both my earlier tests were using binary mode.

I use text mode, and I get the right md5.
