Libranet 2.7 Classic Download Problem

I've tried downloading this distro three times. All three times when it gets to 10 seconds remaining, the download hangs.

Anyone know what's up????

Thanks from a first time user!

It sounds like a problem with your download tool. Try using a different one or a different server.

Well just for grins I checked the md5 on the 99% that had downloaded, and it was a match.

Apparently the whole thing HAD downloaded, and my PC somehow hadn't figured that out.

I'm off to the burner!

Also, with large downloads on ms windows machines, the download will appear to hang right at the end because the file is being coppied from a temporary location such as c:\windows\temp into the directory you chose to place the file.

Libranet is the best (IMHO ;-) ). Tons of software, an excellent install, and a users group that is full of helpful people. I've been using libranet for over a year and am very happy. It's Debian compatible, so you can apt-get install thousands of packages. Check out the forum at, and the mailing list, which is my preferred venue.
