Thank you for your responses.  The biggest concern is ensuring that the files I have downloaded contain only the code that the developers intended - IE. not trojaned.  If this is satisfied, I will know I have received it without errors as well.

I have looked all over http://nagiosplugins.org/ and the Nagios Plugins Sourceforge site and found nothing.  The MD5 is for the Nagios core is in the release notes on the Nagios site.  Why not for the plugins as well?  Have I overlooked it?
