Question First ISO of Madrake 9.0

Okay, I downloaded the 3 ISO's (in binary mode) and in my attempt to isntall I get an error saying that "'usr/bin/runinstall2' is not a directory".

So I checked the file and noticed that it it had a memory size of 0. I checked the ISO with ISOBuster and there too it was 0. This was not the only one either. There are hundreds of files with a size of 0. So I downloaded it again on a different mirror (which was hell on a dial-up) and I'm getting the same thing.

I cannot go any further in the installation when the directories are practicaly not there. Please help!
