yes that is plenty of info about your pc for now
your burner software should be able to show the md5
it make be an option.....would be best to verify the
dl before you burn another disk....
since the first on shows an error

mmk.. i downloaded a program called winmd5sum..after doin some searchin.. it would seem that i need this software to veryfy the d/l as i have windows vista.
i am slso downloading linux again
this link Sabayon-Linux-x86_64-4-r1.iso
from this site http://sabayon.linuxfreedom.com/
and i assume i need to burn it to disk and then verify the file.. which seems a lil after the fact to me.. but i cant seem to do it from the file i d/l for linux..
anyway.. im still at it.. wish me luck
ill post what my results are after the file is downloaded and i try burning...once again

Hi,

You could look at 'md5sum.exe' or 'winMd5Sum Portable' to check the md5sum.

If the iso md5 is ok then you should try 'CdromMd5sumsAfterBurning''.

This way you will know if the burn was OK!

This will check the download iso with the known md5sum that you also get with the iso.

These links and others can be found at 'Slackware-Links'. More than just SlackwareŽ links!
