jigdo and dvd debian

I am trying to download the debian sarge (and woody) dvd with jigdo (for win). I always get this error.

you can find the image of the error at (just put http :// in front)

I tried different mirrors, but it is still the same, I still get the message found 0 of xxxx files required by the template.

My question is. If it is possible to download debian dvd with jigdo, what am I doing wrong?

Thanks Bobby

After you get the .jigdo and .template, it asks for a mirror, type the two letter country code and press enter, it'll bring up a bunch of mirror sites, pick one (i recomend http:// ) and copy, pase and hit enter... this will start the download.

As an alternative to downloading...

I've ordered CD's from these folks in the past: . Very reputable.

You might contact them and see if they offer DVD's in addition to CD's.
