additionally it would be nice if the end user can check that the CD is
all right. It may happen that the CD manufacturer has made buggy
CDs. In this case the vendor could ask the buyer to check the CD
himself and/or can do it to test examples of the whole CD charge quick
and reliable. During each step of making and selling a Debian CD it
would be possible to check that everything is all right.

One way to achieve this could be the checking of md5sums. It would be
nice if the checking could be made on "any" operating system.
