On a related note somewhat some of my friends downloaded the live KDE iso for Fedora 11, but they were not sure how to check the download.   I told them to search for sha1sum.exe, but then it is really sha256sum that they need.   

Where can one get the sha256sum executable for winblow$, aka the evil empire if users download the isos via Windows?
