Thanks John - OK - I did a md5 check & basically the subversion*.gz
files fail with the provided md5's on the subversion download page whereas
the subversion*.zip are OK.
I am guessing this is because I'm downloading them all onto my windows
desktop & then doing the md5sum check on windows & then ftp'ing the *.gz
files to out unix servers.
So I guess my question is - should I be downloading the *.gz files direct
to the unix machines - do you think it's cos I transfer them to my windows
desktop first that causes the problem.

Thanks Simon
