At this moment we are using the ones in the books. 

That allow to avoid the dependency on wget if the user have already downloaded 
all the proper files (for example, the LiveCD) while MD5 verification can be 
done yet.

Also allow to verify files that aren't yet on the FTP mirror but downloaded 
from upstream.

About if the books should to use MD5 sums or SHA1 sums, that is policy 
decision that should be taken by Matthew, Jeremy, Archiac, Jim and Bruce.
