Hi Mark,

Thanks for your advice and URL.

I agree with you that installing OOo1.1 from its tarball is quite simple and 
straghtwards.  I just want to know whether in Rome I have to do the Roman 
way.


Now I have OOo1.1 downloaded but could not discover 'md5sum'

# which md5sum
# whereis
# locate md5sum
/usr/X11R6/bin/gst-md5sum
/usr/X11R6/man/man1/gst-md5sum.1.gz
/usr/local/share/python2.3/Tools/scripts/md5sum.py

# gst-md5sum en-ooodict-GB-1.2.tgz

# man gst-md5sum
does not provide much information.

Is it 'gst-md5sum' same as 'md5sum'

Kindly advise.  TIA

B.R.
Stephen
