arch iso md5sum check in windows
hey all, I am currently forced to use a windows xp box to download the arch 0.7 iso and its md5sum file. My trouble is that I cannot find a checker for winblows that will check the arch-0.7.md5sum file, they all say something along the lines of the file not being valid.
The install CD I burned off spits out this error when it loads up:

isolinux: disk error 80, AX = 4206, drive 9F
Boot Failed: press any key to retry...

I need to know if this is because of a corrupt .iso
Has anybody else had to deal with this? Please, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds to me like the image was corrupted.
There is a Windows console application at

Run it on the file and compare the checksum.
I once burned the file even though it didn't have the same check sum and it didn't work...

So most likely the image didn't download right.

YAY! the checksum said that it was alright, after reading your post I downloaded the .iso again the new one also checked ok but this one worked! I am now installing arch linux. Thank you very much.
