I do not have any software to create a checksum. But, it is downloaded from the LO servers, so
they have them for you.
On the green button for the downloading of the ISO files, there is an "Info" text. You click on
that text and you should get a page showing mirrors for the files and their checksums.
Where are you seeing that "Info" text? I certainly don't see it.
As for checksum, the usual one to use is called md5sum. The utility for that comes with Linux and
is also available for download for Windows. Disc burner software will also check md5sum. You
should always have md5sum available for downloads, not just CD/DVD images. I have often downloaded
multiple files from a site and there will usually be a file called md5sum, which contains md5sum
for all the relevant files. I can then download that to the same directory as the other files.
Then, in a command prompt, I enter the command md5sum -c md5sum, which then runs md5sum on all the
files listed in that md5sum file and displays the results as to valid, bad or missing. However,
even just displaying the md5sum on the web page makes it easy to verify a good download, by
comparing the locally generated md5sum with what's displayed on the web site.
