If any of you is worried about interrupting the download from a browser, you can always use wget. That's my preferred method.

I use kget myself, but it's handy because I use KDE, and it docks nicely in the tray.

Usually, you want to check the value against a reference one for the file to see if they're the same. If you use the command as you showed, you'd have to do this by hand. You can use the -c option to do this for you, e.g.

Code:
md5sum -c filename,
where filename is not the ISO image, but a file containing the ISO image filename and its checksum. md5sum will then look for the file in the current directory and compare checksums.
