   md5sum F11_Home_Dave_20091217.tar.gz

on both machines.
If you get two different results, something bad is happening.

Ahhhhh that gives 2 entirely different 32-digit numbers....

on the F11 desktop

and on the F12 laptop

Rusult of uname -ar on each:
Linux Fedora-Blue #1 SMP Thu Dec 3 23:46:37 EST 2009 i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux

Linux Fedora_Toshi #1 SMP Wed Dec 9 11:14:59 EST 2009 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

Thanks for the suggestion Roberto.....  where to next?????


Are the two files the same size?
Did you do the copy via a memory stick?
If so, did you 'unmount' the memory stick on the source
