i have heard many good things about linux and plan to dual boot the next PC i build with RH9 and XP. i have downloaded all iso images needed (i think) to install the OS but i hear you have execute some sort of "error check" using md5sum but i dont know anything about it.

where do i find md5sum and how does it work?

If you do a search for md5sum on google plenty of links come up, the first link has a windows download for it.
I'd post links but I ain't allowed to do that till I hit 5 posts.
Just search on the mighty google and all will be answered
As far as I know it checks the file is what it should non-technical terms.
