Unable to download RH 8.0


I am unable to download RH 8.0, I have ADSL I am trying to download RH 8.0 from and

The download start without any problem but when I get back in the morning not even half the iso image is downloaded.

Could It be that the servers are busy and its timing out. Is any one else having the same problem, I am able to download other files.

I am using Redhat 7.3 also I am using Mozilla download manager.

You should use a download manager that supports mirrors and then just add a lot of them. As I've downloaded RH 8.0 isos on Sept 30 I've chosen 16 mirror servers ... downloading from 10 at a time (for each ISO).

or, you could just use a ftp client that supports resume...

ncftp supports resume and its easy to use.

If you are downloading in windows then I recommend SmartFTP.
