How about the link on the right-hand side of every page that says "Download Linux"? If that doesn't work, a quick search for Vector Linux brought me to their homepage with options for HTTP and FTP downloads.

It is also recommended to download md5 files, if they are available (they should) and to compare the downloaded ISO file with the md5 checksum.
