The question is what is the last "File: SL.307.060906.x86_64.md5sum".
Sure he have to burn first 4 ones on the CD but what should be done
with the last one? I doubt that it should be burned on the 5th disk.


It most probably contains the checksums of the 4 ISOs, which your friend
could have used to check the downloads:

md5sum -c SL.307.060906.x86_64.md5sum


Thank you very much...
So after downloading all four he have to put the 5th file in the same place and execute the command you gave? Did I got it correctly?

Thanks once more,
Sergey
