Well, I'm not going to say that the above is not a problem as I saw
the same thing when using the same steps, however, nothing you have
done so far has anything to do directly with the ISO. That doesn't
happen until you do:

sha256sum *-CHECKSUM
Here is the rest of the step.
[sawrub mybox Fedora-12-x86_64-Live]$ sha256sum *-CHECKSUM

[sawrub mybox Fedora-12-x86_64-Live]$
When I actually found very confusing because if you look in the file
the headers shows "SHA1" not "SHA256" and there are commands for both
"sha1sum" and "sha256sum".

Yes the header is SHA1
Everything you've shown in your email has to do with verifying the
source of the CHECKSUM data, not comparing the CHECKSUM data to the

Signature itself failing the test, kicked me down.
