[nSLUG] md5 checksum

I downloaded an ubuntu 6.10 iso file from an American mirror site. In
Windows I also downloaded a utility-->
Advanced CheckSum Verifier (ACSV) v1.5.0

The way I read the instructions, I should have got/seen/dl'd a
checksum file from the ubuntu iso download site.

Is it true that I can only verify checksum by having the checksum file
from the original dl site?

Otherwise, what am I verifying?

Appreciate suggestions, thanks.
