Download Manager - download BIG files


I have a quick question.

I'm wanting to download Peanut Linux (~350meg) but my modem cuts out every 4 hours (as per ISP - which is pretty much the standard in Australia).

Download Manager (RH 9.0) doesn't seem to want to continue "failed" downloads.

How can I get around this problem??

Cheers
Andrew

'wget -c foo' should do it.
