Unfortunately, it looks like the iso on the ibiblio mirror is corrupted, the md5sum does not match.  I am loading up a new iso now, but they usually take several days to transfer files over.  

If anybody is willing to host the latest iso now, please contact me -- you will take the brunt of downloads being the one to do the initial hosting.

For now, you can download the iso at < ftp://ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/Incoming >.  I've downloaded it and ran an md5sum, it's good.

It will be moving over to the damnsmall section at ibiblio their' schedule.  So make sure you download damnsmall-0.5_download_this_one.iso instead of damnsmall-0.5.iso.

If anyone is interested in why the iso is corrupted, it has to do with a bug I found in gftp.  You can read about it here:

Hi John,

 This is Daniel Stickney from alien2thisworld.net, I was curious if you wanted me to add any other content to the DamnSmallLinux/ FTP directory besides v0.5 ...  like a few previous versions, or dpkg, etc?  If so, let me know..  otherwise from now on I'll just plan on keeping the latest 3 or so versions of DSL available there.

Hi Daniel, it would be nice to have the dpkg available as well.  Keeping the latest 3 sounds like a good approach.  Thanks!

why I still found the md5 checksum of dowloaded one is not consist to the md5 file (I use IE6).

Try to use an ftp program instead, MSIE in not very reliable when it comes to downloading large files.
