Looks like the last rsync on the site is from 12-Jun-2005 07:11 (front
page timestamp) so the content is possibly out of date.

Looking specifically at db4-4.1.25-8.1.i386.rpm, I get this from that

db4-4.1.25-8.1.i386.rpm: (sha1) dsa sha1 MD5 GPG NOT OK

and this from mirror.centos.org:

db4-4.1.25-8.1.i386.rpm: (sha1) dsa sha1 md5 gpg OK

(I also checked the file on 5 individual mirrors that are in the
mirror.centos.org rrdns entry ... it was good on all 5) 

So it seems that the files in question rsynced improperly and haven't
been corrected.

It could be (if they have a slow connection or are using a rsync switch
to limit bandwidth) that they are still downloading the 3.5 x86_64 and
4.1 i386/ia64 trees with ISOs and haven't had another rsync yet to clear
it up.

I'll send an e-mail to the POC we have for the server and let them know.
