Having problems installing Fedora 7 on PPC

This is sort of a two-part question.

I recently downloaded Fedora 7 from one of the FTP sites listed @ fedoraproject.org. It is the PowerPC version, because I wanted to install it on one of my work computers, which is, unfortunately, a MAC... allout.gif I downloaded the entire CD image (ISO), and burned onto a DVD. After booting from the DVD, I ran the image check and it came back with an error (no specific information), and suggested I not proceed with the installation. Should I proceed anyway?

Part two, which may be linked to the above issue. I also downloaded the hash code for verification of the ISO image. I tried using the Macintosh command line program to verify the image against the hash document, but I couldn't get it to work. Any Unix gurus out there that could give me some advice with this?

Thanks all.

    I'm not sure about mac, but on Windows you can use "md5sums" from:

    Usage would be something like this, assuming you downloaded the iso to C:\temp\cdimage.iso:

    md5sums.exe C:\temp\cdimage.iso

    On a linux box (FC2 at least, maybe the same for Mac):

    md5sum /path/file

    or possibly

    md5sum -c /path/file
    All things are possible, only believe.
