I am wondering if this isn't a bittorrent download you are looking at which is about 380k. The major host for this iso shows it as 4.4GB.

373.59 what? If it's kilobytes, it might be what TigerOC said. If it's megabytes, this is an issue with some download managers which aren't able to handle files bigger than 2 GB. You could try to use another DM.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
