torrent downloads repeatedly fail checksum

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I'm trying to upgrade to F11, and I'm having trouble. I attempted to download the x86_64 DVD .iso image by bit torrent, and it seemed okay, but when I started the installation the DVD failed the initial integrity check. I tried a second time with another DVD and got the same result. I tried running md5sum on the .iso image, but the response did not match what was in the CHECKSUM file that came with the .iso image -- should it? I tried downloading a live DVD image for comparison and found the same result - the response to the md5sum command did not match what was listed in the CHECKSUM file. Should these checksums match, or am I comparing apples and oranges? I thought the bit torrent client was supposed to check the files, but I'm not sure about that. thanks, Bruce (HowTos)
