The reason was that the file format has changes.  .ISM and .ISD are
ISAM files while .MYD and .MYI are binary portable MyISAM files.
You should use 'myisamchk *.MYI to check MyISAM files.
(Unfortunately myisamchk was left out from the binary rpm release. If
you need this on Linux you have to compile the source RPM)
