vinux-4.0-desktop-i386.iso rsync command needed

Thanks much for the bash script.  This time apparently it worked.
There's the rest of the story below though and software developers would 
do well to read this one.
After the rsync and I discovered the wrong version of vinux was being 
downloaded for this machine I downloaded the correct version of vinux for 
this hardware and did an rsync on it.
Then I did an md5sum check and several files were apparently missing.  So 
I'm thinking this is puzzling.
Just for chuckles I burn the dvd and tried to boot on it.  Orca came up 
talking and I got taken into the install frame and english was selected. 
I aborted the install after that since I want to do this after lightning 
has left this area.
Also I have another hard drive I want to use.
I think when we can get a screen for this computer and some sighted 
assistance I want to make sure dvd or cd is first in boot order.  It could 
be it's not now and my bios somehow got modified.
What I do there and it sometimes works is to have the hard drive in the 
sled but have air space between its connectors and the computer until the 
dvd starts booting up then I push the drive in and lock the sled.  It will 
be interesting to see if vinux can find my hard drive under these 
Now back to this md5sum thing.  I think it's likely several software 
developer's md5sums on sourceforge were hacked and defaced.  A feature 
grml has to respond to this is an integrity check on the dvd a user can 
run and find out if they got a good copy burnt.  What vinux in some future 
version might do to improve on this and other software developers as well 
would be to do an integrity check and let the user know less than 100% 
integrity on this dvd but there's enough integrity to do an install, or 
100% integrity comes back as a message, or less than 100% integrity on dvd 
and install cannot be done.  That will take two different md5sums to 
figure out.  The first for minimal install inetgrity and the second for 
disk integrity.
