I need a little more help.
« on: August 10, 2007, 01:53:26 pm »
I made a donation and downloaded the whole set.  But I have a few stupid questions to ask.  First of all,  the dvd came in a part 1 & part 2 and the download page referred to joining the files by typing "type *.iso_part0 > ubuntu-ultimate-gamers_or_LinuxMCE_0704_Quick_Install_DVD.iso".  Do I open a command window to do this or what and when?  Secondly I have a copy of the MD5SUMS, but how do I use them to check the integrity of the downloads?  Please pardon my ignorance.

1) Not sure about connecting the parts (because I don't know the exact name of files), but you should open command window (e.g. console) and run
cat part1_name part2_name >> new_iso_name.txt
(this is you are running Linux)

2) Regarding the MD5 checksums:  also from command line, run
md5sum *
to get md5 sums of all files in the current folder
