[Quantian-general] MD5SUM errors

Thanks, all, for the help.

I was successful in using rsync, the remainder of the file downloaded,
and the md5sum checked exactly.

I burned the DVD with K3B, and had it verify the image.  It confirmed


When I attempted to boot 0.7 from the DVD (the 0.6 DVD will boot ok), I
get the following message right after I see the penguin:

Kernel panic -- not syncing : VFS : unable to mount root fs on

Does anyone have any suggestions?  I tried burning another one, all
checked out, and I still get the same message.

I googled around.   A syntax that works is

rsync -v rsync://quantian.fhcrc.org/quantian/Quantian_0.7.9.1.iso . 
--partial --progress

from the directory where the partial iso lives.

I had a partial file from a truncated http download, and the above 
sucessfully finished the task.
Note the dot between "...iso" and "--partial".
