Something tells me your download didn't work all too well!

Did you run an MD5 checksum to verify the image before burning it to DVD?

Something certainly got muddled up on your download, just alone the file size suggests that...

Just make sure you check that the MD5 sum of your download is correct before you burn another coaster.
Any probs, just post again!

Thumbs up LWP-DOWNLOAD

Hiya,

I have had same problem and I discovered that Internet explorer doesn't support more than 2Gig files download and same with mozilla. I tried several other tools like wget ncftp, none of them helped.

However, there is another tool which redhat( or fedora) linux gives lwp-download , which is specially for fetching largefiles from internet. I used that and it worked very well.

Here is link for more information : http://www.perldoc.com/perl5.8.4/bin/lwp-download.html

Usage :
~
lwp-download [-a] <url> [<local file>]


$ lwp-download http://www.perl.com/CPAN/src/latest.tar.gz
Saving to 'latest.tar.gz'...
1.47 MB received in 22 seconds (68.7 KB/sec)

~

Try it !
