I installed openmosix on two machines and it works
fine. When I tried to install it on a third, I got a
'bad md5 digest' message. After trying --nodigest
with rpm, I got a 'bad md5 checksum' (or something like
that) message. And after trying --nodigest and --nomd5
with rpm, I got a message that read something like
'cpio: bad magic.' I used the same CDROM that was
used to install on the first two machines. If this
helps, the machine is an IBM PC 300GL, 333MHz Celeron
with 128MB RAM, and I tried to install
openmosix-kernel-2.4.22-openmosix2.i386.rpm. Please
advise.

    Can you verify that "md5sum openmosix*.rpm" returns the same
    hash for the files on each system? How did you transfer the
    files to this system? When you say you used the same cdrom
    to install, did you mean the OS or openmosix install? You
    may just have a corrupted file, and need to re-download the
    rpm.

    Closing this for now. I'll re-open it if you respond with
    feedback.
