Warning: Cannot install Bundle::MD5, don't know what it is.
Try the command

i /Bundle::MD5/

to find objects with matching identifiers.

Is this done, or do I need to do something else. Forgive my n00bness, Im not just trying to "get er' done" I am trying to understand.

What do I do with these files?
