I did some more investigation, and it appears that the Sparc CDs are the only
ones without Joliet (=long filenames for Win). So you get the DOS (8.3) names
which obviously don't match the .list files.
Phil (if you're looking ;-) : this should be corrected before 2.1_r5.

On Win systems, you've got to use a CD-ripping/burning program, that can
re-make an .iso file of the CD. (And that .iso must have 2048 bytes/sector
WITHOUT checksum info (which gives 2352(?) bytes)) That .iso should be named
binary-sparc-1.iso before starting the rsync as indicated in the README.
Of course, if you still have the checksum-error-image of 2.1r4, you could also
try to use that as the base file for rsync.
The rsync sites ftp.eecs.umich.edu::debian-cd/ and
sunsite.org.uk::public/packages/debian-cd/ are known to be (mostly) up-to-date
and fast, so you might try them as well.

Are we talking about the same thing here? The make-pseudo-image program
constructs one file named "pseudo-image" from lots of files it gets via
FTP/HTTP/local disk. After you rename "pseudo-image" to, say,
"binary-sparc-1.iso", you start the rsync program to `update' your home-brew
.iso file to the official one, that's only _one_ file (there's no need for
more, and it's not possible either). make-pseudo-image is something very
different than rsync. Maybe it's an idea to re-read the (entire) README;
please ask if you don't understand some part of it.
If you still experience problems, please tell me exactly what commands you
typed, and what exactly got printed on screen.
