jigdo DVD sarge download

Hi, I'm trying to download the sarge's dvd ( using this jigdo file:

I'm using jigdo-lite (jigdo-lite/0.7.1 (GNU Wget 1.9.1; linux-gnu)) on an ubuntu distro, the target where I'm building the file is a samba share mounted on the ubuntu fs.
The samba share has an ext3 fs, and the machine running the samba server is a debian sarge with a 2.6 kernel.

Thanks in advance,

Sorry I've completly forgot to specify the problem!

When the downloaded file's size (the file name is sarge.iso.tmp) reach 2 GB then jidgo-lite stops.
The message I've got is:

Downloaded: 632,444 byte in 10 file
Found 10 of the 6674 files required by the template
/usr/bin/jigdo-lite: line 771: 10753 File size limit reached $jigdoFile $jigdoOpts --no-cache make-image
--image="$image" --jigdo="$jigdoF" --template="$template" "$imageTmp"
jigdo-file failed with code 153 - aborting.

ls -lh say:
-rwxr--r-- 1 agenteo agenteo 16K 2004-12-27 16:22

the sarge-i386-1.iso.tmp file is 2GB...

That has to do with your Kernel, some do not support files larger than 2GB.
I had it also with an older version of jigdo-light which was not compiled
for larger than 2GB files, even though the kernel could live with them.

In the former case you need to switch on the right flag when you burn your
kernel (or maybe there are also modules for that, I don't know).
In the latter case try another version of jigdo-light, the one I downloaded

Good luck.

The problem was solved, I was saving the file on a Samba share... that's it.
