http://linuxiso.org/viewdoc.php/verifyiso.html has info on what these are and how to use them. In summary, they are used to verify that you have a 'good' download.

ISO Burning

Where can I get a good ISO CD burning program for free? I need it for windows to burn Mandrake.

did you try double clicking on the iso in windows? I assume you have some type of burning program installed. If it does iso format, double clicking on the iso itself should bring up the program ready to burn the iso. Nero works like that, but it is not free.

I would suggest just downloading a demo version to get your Mandrake done. After that you can always use K3b for burning in Mandrake for free. I have yet to burn a bad cd or dvd with it yet.

Actually, I found a thing called burnatonce. It worked really well, and I'm about to install mandrake 10.1.

You can also use Windows Explorer to burn ISO's, and assuming you have windows XP.. it's "free" as you already have it..

I think it's a right click option or something, you might want to check around explorer (initally one of my friends burned me copies of Fedora this way.....)

There's also this other program out there called ISOBUSTER for Windows that I have used to burn ISO images. AND, you can extract ISO/BIN files to your hard drive.

I think that's only in professional, knowing Microsoft, probably using the cheapest one around and charging extra for it.
