It you would have been more helpful if you had explained what each of
your commands did or preferably sent Chris off to someplace where he
could glean more information on md5 checksums.

Spewing out UNIX commands like that only helps at widening the gap
between "us" in the *nix world and "them" in Windows world.

On my Slackware box I have no problems when I put the actual md5 into
file, example:

[~:core-dump] echo "testing for mailing list" > testfile
[~:core-dump] md5sum testfile
31747f4c8bbdf8c2e64cd2f6bf3b0c19  testfile
[~:core-dump] echo "31747f4c8bbdf8c2e64cd2f6bf3b0c19  testfile" > md5
[~:core-dump] md5sum -c md5
testfile: OK

Try that.
