    check where u downloaded it for the "md5sum"

    then in the command line type:

    Code:
    md5sum filename.iso
    obviouslyt changinf filename.iso to the relevent filename/path to file if in a different directory.

    this will return a 32 character long string which you can match up to the md5sum on the internet. If the matchm the download's good, if not, probably not good.
