[mmatula at tantalus mmatula]$ md5sum /download/smoothwall-0.9.9-lada.iso

Looks good to me. I thought I had done that before, but wasn't sure.
I would have tested it at the time I suggested it, but didn't have the
resources at hand.
The first time, it's a KLUDGE!
The second, a trick.
Later, it's a well-established technique!
