Yeah. I have fixed the instructions and the file.  Your checksum does
match btw.

Omega's site is just a personal site and not affiliated with Red Hat or
Fedora project. It is just something I do on my own. In the past, others
volunteered mirrors but I could hold up to the traffic anyway.  Since I
hosted this image in only one place, I didn't consider the tampering to
be a serious possibility but I guess I could gpg sign the checksum file
to avoid the problem.
