I've got the file named LATEST-Stable.iso from
The md5 of the iso-file is:

maus at tigger tmp $ md5sum LATEST-Stable.iso 
0f4def43b16cceb8dc0f69bae271605c  LATEST-Stable.iso

(Today they have a LATEST-Stable.iso dated 04-Apr).

The md5 of /dev/cd0a is (also)

0f4def43b16cceb8dc0f69bae271605c /dev/cd0a

The image was dated 27-Mar-2005 on this server.
