Re: Can't figure out how to put a directory in the home file. I want to check my mint 18.1 mate DVD

I got a number after I downloaded it, I went to the install disk on the desktop . I right clicked on it and there was Check MD5/sha and the number was the same as the download. I think. I went around and around for quite a long time so I'm not totally sure of what happened at this point.

That seems to bring us back to the same question , I have the sha/md5 number. I listed it in my thread. Thats the download file it matches the mint18.1 distro file, now I want to check it on the DVD and after that check it when it is loaded.
