Exclamation First ISO of Madrake 9.0

Okay, I downloaded the 3 ISO's (with WS_FTP 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 (with CuteFTP in binary mode) on a different mirror (which was hell on a dial-up) and I'm getting the same thing. Both of the file sizes match with the mirrors.

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

Howdy Dustin!
I used those crappy programs too, they easily corrupt files if you freeze in the middle of the download or if you switch mirrors.
I recommend "Get Right", can be found on cnet.
Its great, it lets you resume your download even if you freeze and it doesnt corrupt your files.
The best part is that you can speed up your download.
But dont be confused with downloadaccelerator crap, this is way better.

Well then how come they didn't corrupt the other ISO's?
the thing that confuses me the most is that the file sizes match witht he mirrors.... I guess I'lll jsut try again with GetRight

yeah and they did not match up with the real sum. They were both the same. But why would they be the same twice?
