If you're running Win95, there is a DOS command called 'fc' for 'file
compare', which can compare files for differences. It will work with binary
files but it will simply state that the files are the same or different. For
ultimate security, you could always get someone with a guaranteed Steve Edgar
version 1 to PGP sign the executable and send you the signature to verify.
