How do I verify the iso's with md5sums and other questions

How do I verify the iso's with md5sums? I am using windows 2000 and xp currently. I need step by step instructions as I am completely new to this (and almost anything having to do with linux).

Also, how much work will I have to go through to make Mandrake 9.2 recognize my Radeon 9800? Should it do it automatically?

Are there any chat rooms where I can get help quickly? If not, would anyone volunteer to give me their aim screen name so that I can ask for help in the middle of doing something. I like forums, but they are not too effective for questions that require lots of information to answer.

If you want to volunteer to help through aim, Iíll private message you with my screen name.

Since you are using the download stuff, you will have to do the video card driver manually. The purchased power pack has them included.

Preparation is key..
