Re: how do I expand an iso image on linux



It's a good idea to verify the md5sums after transferring the iso's.
Red Hat lists them on the same page with the downloads.  Generate local
ones like
md5sum filename > filename.md5
and compare to the originals.  I've seen a number of cd's that failed
md5sum comparisons, but 'sort of' worked.
