checksums?

I know or at least I think that they are just ways for validating a file. How are they created, modified etc? What is the difference between checksums and hashes?

Depends on the type of checksum,some are calculated based on adding all the bytes in a file together and deviding by some number (0xFF or 0xFFFF come to mind), but those aren't real "good" (for lack of a better word)

Other checksums are calculated in other methods, that make a much more unique value for them, some of these include MD5 and CRCC.

Hope that helps, at all.
