How can I download the 9.2 DVD iso?

I was wondering what program the people who downloaded the suse 9.2 DVD iso used. I'm using firefox w/default download manager and each time I try downloading the iso it says "file size unknown." Is this normal, or is the file too big? What program should I use instead? Thanks

Not that it's much help, the March Linux Format magazine has the Full 9.2 Download version on it's DVD cover disk. Sorry if, it didn't answer you'r question, i'm on dial-up and monster downloads are out of my league and predicted life-span ( e.g. probably be 10 years older at end of download) Just an option if you can get it wherever you are.

Some server do not support the download of files greater that 2GB with a certain protocol. Try a standard FTP client instead (Konqueror should work in Linux or Windows Explorer (via IE) in Windows). Or try another server.

Several download managers have problems downloading files larger than 2 GB. I had this problem when i was downloading the SUSE DVD image too (i was using wget). I solved the problem using the ftp-client ncftp, it handles the large file without any problem.
