When it comes to downloading a distro on Dial-Up, let me say it can be done.
I have downloaded at least 20 distro's on Dial-Up, I even downloaded the 5 CD set for SuSe 10
I keep reading about how it's to big to download with Dial-Up, I say Bu#lS%^t!
My Secret is that I use MetaProducts Mass Downloader see link http://www.metaproducts.com/mp/mpPro...tail.asp?id=18
With this sorry to say Windows Freeware Program I can start to download a Distro and pause it turn off my computer and restart it next time I am onLine.
Something Like Mepis 6.0 CD takes about 36-40 hours in total to download by using the Evil Side (Windows) of my computer.
Basically what I do is start my download at night before going to bed and while I am asleep I download the Distro I want. Easy!!
Something Like Puppy or Damn Small are ready to be burnt to CD when I wakeup!.
