No, that's not interesting - the md5sum on the website is only for  
the source - it's embedded in the RPM.

As it says on the website, the RPMs were created on CentOS4. Your  
kernel is 2.4.21, which sounds like a pretty old OS - it might not  
work with newer RPMs. Try building from source instead.

Gromacs uses shared libraries in the RPM, so 3-4Mb sounds about right.
