I've had several attempts at trying to load mint 4.0 on my laptop, not much success. a few people have written, check md5sum for a match. question, match with what??
is it the md5sum on the mint web page against what was burnt onto the cd? if so, they don't match with me.
mint site - 572a56ec165ef6ad8f785cc7f13a5a14
on my cd it reads d41d8cd98f00b204e9800998ecf8427e ./md5sum.txt

am i missing something???

You compare the md5sum calculated for the entire ISO with 572a56ec165ef6ad8f785cc7f13a5a14 for the main edition
In the ISO - if I remember correctly - you also find the md5sums for each individual file including md5sum.txt and I guess that's what you've found
So set your md5sum checker to check the ISO and compare to 572a56ec165ef6ad8f785cc7f13a5a14
