How to download ISO images


Hi, Guys

I am new to this Linux and this forum. I would like to download the latest version of Suse and dual boot with window xp on my home computer. My problem is that each time i try to download the image i am asked for usrname and password. I have looked everywhere and i can't find where to get the login credentials. I'm currently using IE and download accelerator on windows xp. Please advice

easiest just to pick a different mirror.... try one from our iso site. there certainly shouldn't be a password on them as a rule of thumb. http://iso.linuxquestions.org/

I have tried nearly all the mirrors on the http://iso.linuxquestions.org site for Live DVD ISO image and all are requesting a user name and password. Is it my settings or is there a conspiracy . . . ..

Works just fine for me, no password needed.

Cool

Instead of highlighting, right click and copy target, it's much bigger than just that

Cool

I hope the downlaod goes well. I have problems in Windows downloading DVD iso's. Anything over 2Gb and windows seems to fail. Either by ftp or http. Eventually I grabbed it using the trusty wget command :-)

Cool woppa30

Yeah you're right...on Windows sometimes the connection with the ftp server fails, so maybe if your download fails craig_jones....use a ftp downloader, something like cute ftp or wget command like woppa30 said, I've been able to grab the DVD iso with cuteftp...
