what to do with 5 parts of wget download


Today I began downloading a knoppix iso with wget. We had some electrical work going on, so I had to restart the download a few times. At that point I hadn't read the man pages for wget, but thought from the recommendation given me that I just needed to enter the wget <url-to-file> again. I have this:

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 137209824 Sep 11 13:11 KNOPPIX_V3.2-2003-07-26-EN.iso
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1343040 Sep 11 18:49 KNOPPIX_V3.2-2003-07-26-EN.iso.1
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 664196544 Sep 11 23:23 KNOPPIX_V3.2-2003-07-26-EN.iso.2
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 259936 Sep 11 19:09 KNOPPIX_V3.2-2003-07-26-EN.iso.3
-rw------- 1 root root 727525376 Sep 11 23:08 KNOPPIX_V3.2-2003-07-26-EN.iso.4

After reading the man pages for wget, and looking at these 5 files, I believe that I can delete all but KNOPPIX_V3.2-2003-07-26-EN.iso.4, and rename it without the 4, and I'm all set.

Can someone confirm that, or tell me what to do if that's not correct? And next time I use wget, I believe some options such as wget -c may be helpful.

yeah you wanted that -c option.....

well that last file looks nig enough.... you can test it in advance if you want...

mount -o loop KNOPPIX_V3.2-2003-07-26-EN.iso.4 /mnt/floppy

this will mount it as a cd at /mnt/floppy and if it works, then that's that done....
