Sub_title: so we can check it downloaded OK

1st, many thanks to all you puplet creators. Very Happy

To make sure we get your creation as intended, please don't forget to provide a checksum to verify it downloaded correctly.

The most common format is MD5, and can be created with one simple text command.
md5sum puppy-puplet.iso > puppy-puplet.iso.md5

To make it easy to spread your creation, try to host the MD5 file in the same directory as your puplet. Post a link to that directory so people can easily find both the puplet iso and its MD5.

See for more info.

Thanks, and keep on remastering!
