Ubuntu download dilemma

Well, my attempts to check the data integrity of my Ubuntu installation file did not go well. The Ubuntu website strongly recommends the procedure before burning the file to CD. I can definitely understand the need for your OS install CD to be 100 percent correct, so I followed the instructions for downloading and running the md5sum utility that are located on the Ubuntu website. I tried downloading an md5sum from a couple of sites, actually, and the result was always the same: my computer never recognized the md5sum command.

So now I have a dilemma. Do I just burn the CD and hope for the best, or do I keep trying?
