cd-r blues

okay, I'm posting way too much about computers here, so this is probably the last one on this subject for a while.

I would really like to figure out why I can't get Nero to copy a CD in such a way that it comes up with the same MD5 checksum. It makes me paranoid when they're not -- it worked fine for the Knoppix burn, but it doesn't work for the copy of the Timo's Rescue CD I'm trying to dupe.

I've made five different burns, which have three different checksums, none of which matches the .md5 values from sourceforge or the checksum of the CD (which last two match each other). All five actually mount, but that's not reassuring.
