The ISO:

MD5 list (from mirror servers):

INCORRECT first download:
> $ openssl md5 install44.iso
> MD5(install44.iso)= f3ad84cdde68754d6ac03ccce862165b

INCORRECT DIFFERENT second download (same server):
$ openssl md5 install44.iso
MD5(install44.iso)= 48410b38aaac72727fb950bae37a94e8

 From another mirror, CORRECT checksum:
$ openssl md5 install44.iso
MD5(install44.iso)= 6bff6dd0f2a703e5f99a82ed3e120b6c
