I am not talking about downloading MD5SUMS to the same directory as the 5
iso's are. I am talking about the mediacheck that happens during the

I tried it again and now suddenly it works. No idea why it did not before.
very strange it did not work before.
So this is what I do:
1) makeSUSEdvd (with only CD1)
2) tagmedia --md5 --pad 150 --check DVD_DIR/SUSE-10.1-0-DVD.iso
3) Boot it in Parallels

I even have 3 movies made that shows it a bit better

Standard makeSUSEdvd. Does no check. It goes directly to the next step. 845K
