so far I tried DAP, internet explorer and mozilla to download this file...
now I'm trying HiDownload...
But I think that the problem is within the proxy server.
This is the proxy server identification string (captured with ethereal):
Server: Apache/1.3.33 (Debian GNU/Linux) PHP/4.3.10-15

I don't think that HiDownload will solve the problem...It reports the size of the file like this: -931424256B....I guess you saw the minus sign

Why not ask the IT people at your school? Surely they would know the solution.

I've downloaded a few dvd images. Opera and Mozilla browsers handled them ok. I tried one for windows that seemed decent. I think it is this one > http://www.freedownloadmanager.org/features.htm.

Once you get linux installed, Kget for downloads and Kb3 for cd burning work very well. It's been awhile since I used Xp.

The people at my scool don't know anything. It's very good for them that linux servers come with very good default configurations ( that is very likely to fit one needs). Otherwise they would leave the job .

FreeDownloadManager (the program that fair_is_fair suggested) doesn't know about proxy servers, so I can't use it.

Ask the computer tech at school to download it and burn it for you, I was on reasonably good terms with the guy at my high school since he was the teacher for a couple of my classes and before I got broadband he downloaded a burned a few things for me from the other side of our proxy.

I went to my ISP and asked him to let me use direct connection in order to download what i needed and he agreed (although he didn't like it ).
I'he downloaded the image, so the problem is within the apache proxy server.

Lightbulb the nearest solution

this is probably a filesystem limitation. This latter is used by your operating system (9x/NT/2000/Me/XP, UNIX/Linux...) to handle files on a hard disk.

I thought we'd already established that wasn't the problem in this month-and-a-half old thread?

Free Download Manager

I agree. Knowing is good. Futher knowlege for the masses. Free Download Manager does have Proxy support (at least mine does). I don't use it, so I don't know if it is broken or inadiquit.

To access the proxy settings, go to Download Options, New Download tab, Advanced, Proxy tab. The default setting is to follow IE's setup, so I don't know what the problem was.
