I'm assuming that you can find the ISO's at a friendly mirror near you. 
Look for files with an extension of ".iso" and pay attention to the
"architecture", such as i386, i586, i686, etc.  

There are several ways to download, depending on what tool you're
using.  So I can't help much without knowing what you are trying to work

Download the file MD5SUM from your mirror to get the checksums.  Then

$ md5sum file-you-downloaded.iso

will give you the checksum.  Test the long hexadecimal result against
what's in the MD5SUM file.
