I downloaded the games spin of Fedora 13, i386 version, and I discovered, using an Windows program, that the "SHA1SUM" code of the "iso" file who I downloaded is the following:

By the way, what's the right "SHA1SUM" of this image who I described above?

Did you download through torrent or direct? If you downloaded through torrent there should be no need to verify the download, since that should be done by the torrent mechanism.

Have you burnt this? If memory serves me correctly, every Linux image I've burnt had an option in its boot menu to check the integrity of the disk. That's quite important as you can have errors during the burning process.

Yup there is an option to auto check integrity.

The specification for BitTorrent includes a checksum,
so I believe that all clients check it, which might explain the lack of checksums on the download page. Transmission sure does check them.
