It is a problem if the checksum does not match. I'm not familiar with
bittorrent. But if you say BT makes sure data is transferred reliably...
then it must be that the source of the BT data was already bad.

Assuming your source of the MD5 checksum numbers are correct/reliable,
and if your ISO don't match... you definitely have a problem there.

Note it is not impossible that installations could still succeed. That
could be because the installation process didn't have to read the part
where the data is bad.
