rsync has a -n flag, that in my mind stands for "not really" It will let 
you try it out without actually transferring anything.

I'd do this:

cd /dir/with/iso/in/it
md5sum Fedora-9-i386-disc2.iso
# this should all be on one line
rsync -nv 

md5sum Fedora-9-i386-disc2.iso

There's a final period to indicate PWD.
