how big is window maker download !!!!!


Hey guys.

im trying to download window maker
www.windowmaker.org

anyway, when i start the download, my dowload client tells me im download a 2 meg file.
But after 2 megs it keeps going, i let it get all the way to 22 megs then my connection was re-set.

i only have a 56k modem, so downloading it is a pain in the a$$ especialy cos i dont know how much to expect, i never know its its almost done !!!!

has any1 else downloaded this WM ?
is so, whats its approximate size ???????

2.4 megs to be exact.
Do this:
in case it gets interrupted you can resume.

well thanx for helping.
first impressions are important... after finding a server that would send me the file, and installing it.. it crahsed.

so im now playing around with sawfish and iceWM. which seem quite promising
