Converting a .tar to a .tar.md5?

Trying to flash a rom to a phone, the flash util in windows is wanting a .tar.md5

MD5 is a checksum. Look for md5sum to generate it.

Maybe this:

Well, Odin start with just the .tar, but Windows shuts it down because the program has a prob. Anything else that will flash a Samsung? I have a feeling if Windows would let it finush it would go. Any tools to do it in Linux? Or a place that will flash phones I could just mail it to? I feel like it should be way easier than this.
