To do so, you must first download the appropriate ''checksum file'' from the same Sourceforge folder as your chosen ISO image. A checksum file will have the same name as the ISO image that it is to be used with; the only difference is that it will end in either ''-sha1.sum''' or '''-sha256.sum'''. For example, the appropriate checksum file for the ''manjaro-xfce-0.8.1-x86_64.iso'' file (64 bit Manjaro release 0.8.1 with the XFCE desktop) will be manjaro-xfce-0.8.1-x86_64'''-sha1.sum''', and/or manjaro-xfce-0.8.1-x86_64'''-sha256.sum'''.

The 'sha' part of the checksum file name stands for '''S'''ecure '''H'''ash '''A'''lgorithm, which is used to generate a particular code unique to the downloaded ISO image; sha1 and sha256 are different versions of this algorithm that you can use to do this. While sha1 is the most widely used version, sha256 is a later and more secure version. Which you decide to use is entirely your choice. However, if you are unsure, then it is recommended to use sha256.
