http://stackoverflow.com – Currently i am trying to install linux I was just checking md5 checksum to see if the file is downloaded correctly or not. situation is like this. I have downloaded linux .iso file in win xp have checked the md5 from Microsoft 'File checksum integrity verifier' utility. it is giving a different checksum from the one displayed on the linux OS website. Q. IS the md5 checksum different (or same) on different OS ( winxp, win7, linux etc) ?? (HowTos)
