What filesystem do you use for /home? And are you sure you were not accidentally downloading to another directory, maybe the desktop?

can you please post the result of the following commands:
df -h
fdisk -l
du -sh /*
cd <directory where the download is going>
pwd -P

(that's the capital letter P for the flag after pwd)

These commands should tell you where it's going and what the disk space usage looks like.

Sorry, I was a bit confused there. Desktop is still your home directory so that shouldn't make any difference.

What is it that you are trying to download exactly, the cd(s) or the dvd?

Okay, it looks like you should have plenty of space, and as long as you are doing the wget in /home/<username> you should be fine. The one thing I'm not sure of is disk quotas. If you have disk quotas set up on this system then you will need to make sure that they are not limiting you. However, I doubt that by default you would have quotas set up.
