Cough --- wget Wheezy


I know this will seem dumb to you savvy lads and lasses. I want to
use wget to download Wheezy. I'm not sure how to go about it. Would
using the following in terminal get the job done? If not, what should I use?

Code:
$ wget -c http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/debian-wheezy/i386/iso-cd/debian-wheezy-i386-kde-CD-1.iso

Using the info from Debian themselves you have
Code:
wget -c /location/of/file (example: http://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/7.0.0/i386/iso-cd/debian-7.0.0-i386-kde-CD-1.iso
EDIT:JWJones beat me to it.

Is there any particular reason you don't want the Netinst. You get it here:
http://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/...86-netinst.iso
It would go a lot quicker.

I opted to try your method using Konqueror Browser. I got an .iso on my
Desktop. The md5sums check.

Thanks very much. all of you.

If you want to download only one file, I prefer curl.
