Hey, i'm new to this stuff and need'a bit of help :/ Well the MD5's have to be the same right? On recovery-clockwork-2.5.1.8 it is cae9935b88359dc96859d39f20d8a821 but on Japanese Jellyfish it is 1698CF7AF9D130B02DDC471D089751D8.

I'm up to that part and currently following

Thanks, ;)

The MD5's for jellyfish and clockwork aren't meant to be the same. Every file has it's own unique MD5. The MD5 is basically there to make sure that what you downloaded matches what the rom creator uploaded. To ensure that your internet didn't cut out half way through and protect you from flashing half a rom for instance.

The idea is, you download the files and copy them to your SD card and then make sure that the MD5's of the files on your SD card match the codes they are meant to be.

How about beginning here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MD5

I was going to link that - until I read it. It's not exactly a non-techie explanation is it? ;)
